A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Astronomy Collection - Early studies in China and the Mid-East indicate a distinction between the ecliptic and celestial equator, while Greek astronomers identified the intersection points of the 2 giving the equinoxes. Pythagoras established a center for study in Italy around 530 B.C., taught the earth was a sphere, accounted for planetary motion, and believed the earth and planets revolved around the sun – the heliocentric theory. Copernicus in 1543 A.D. was puzzled that if the earth actually moved around the sun then the stars should show evidence of parallax as the earth moved, but at the time the instruments used were primitive and no one could imagine how extremely distant the stars were until Gallileo's invention of the telescope in 1608. Today some observations are made from the Hubble Space Telescope, the Space Shuttle, and other space based devices. Advances seem to come on a daily basis as the puzzles of the universe are relentlessly solved.
