Mechanical Astronomy: A Route to the Ancient Discovery of Epicycles and Eccentrics
The ancient Greek art of spbairopoiia was devoted to the building of models of the universe such as celestial globes and annillary spheres. But it also included the construction of geared mechanisms
Historical Eclipses and Earth's Rotation
The Earth and Moon are a dynamic, closely coupled system. What happens to one is mutually reflected in the motions of the other through an exchange of angular momentum and energy which, even over
Did Ptolemy Understand the Moon Illusion?
TLDR
This paper elucidates the two Ptolemaic accounts: one in the Almagest,based on atmospheric refraction, and the other in the Optics, based on the difficulty of looking upwards, and refers to the latter passage which has been thought to refer to size-distance invariance.
