The Perihelion Effect

today is Johannes Kepler’s birthday

December 27th – It’s the birthday of astronomer Johannes Kepler, born to a poor mercenary in Württemberg, Germany (1571), who tracked the orbital path of Mars and published his three famous laws of planetary motion — which validated Copernicus’s theory of a sun-centered solar system — and later helped Isaac Newton discover the law of gravity.
Kepler was nearly blind from a smallpox epidemic when he was three, and he developed the first eyeglass designs for nearsightedness and farsightedness.
He was also the first to explain that

  • tides are caused by the moon,
  • the first to propose that the sun rotates on an axis,
  • and the first to use planetary cycles to calculate the year of the birth of Jesus Christ.
