GUEST,John F Weldon Origins: Old Astronomer (not the famous one) (9) Origins: Old Astronomer (not the famous one) 04 Nov 18

Listening to a song sung by Rick Lee called "The Old Astronomer".

It is NOT based on the poem by Sarah Williams. This Astronomer was Ptomemaist (believed the sun revolved around the earth) & is buried in New Hampshire.

Was this astronomer a real person? Who was he? The song says he "proved" his theories... ...a nice song, but kinda nutty.
