Abstract: In this note we present a new characterization for subnormality which is purely $ {C^ \ast }$-algebraic. We also establish an intrinsic characterization of the normal spectrum for a subnormal operator, which enables us to prove that $ {\sigma _ \bot }(\pi (S)) \subseteq {\sigma _ \bot }(S)$ for any $ ^ \ast $-representation $ \pi $.
