Cleveland Carter first took an interest in astronomy in his early teen years. He became a Christian at about the same time. Seeing that the Bible speaks of stars and constellations, he believed that there was more to astronomy than meets the eye. Over time, his research led him to discover the information presented in this book.
He teaches biblical astronomy to classes in a church setting and uses this information as a witnessing tool. At this writing, Cleveland is in the process of building a backyard observatory, to discover what other mysteries God has to reveal. He believes that there must be more and is determined to discover it. Formats Softcover.

The two had drunkenly quarreled over who was the superior mathematician at an engagement party at the home of Professor Lucas Bachmeister on 10 December. Though the two were later reconciled, the duel resulted in Tycho losing the bridge of his nose, and gaining a broad scar across his forehead. He received the best possible care at the university, and wore a prosthetic nose for the rest of his life. It was kept in place with paste or glue, and said to be made of silver and gold. In April , Tycho returned home from his travels, with a firm intention of becoming a scientist. Although he had been expected to go into politics and the law, like most of his kinsmen, and although Denmark was still at war with Sweden, his family supported his decision to dedicate himself to the sciences.

His father wanted him to take up law, but Tycho was allowed to travel to Rostock and then to Augsburg where he built a great quadrant , Basel , and Freiburg. In , he was appointed a canon at the Cathedral of Roskilde, a largely honorary position that would allow him to focus on his studies. At the end of , he was informed of his father's ill health, so he returned to Knutstorp Castle , where his father died on 9 May The war was over, and the Danish lords soon returned to prosperity. Soon, another uncle, Steen Bille, helped him build an observatory and alchemical laboratory at Herrevad Abbey.
However, Danish law permitted morganatic marriage , which meant that a nobleman and a common woman could live together openly as husband and wife for three years, and their alliance then became a legally binding marriage. However, each would maintain their social status, and any children they had together would be considered commoners, with no rights to titles, landholdings, coat of arms, or even their father's noble name.
Kirstine died from the plague in , and Tycho wrote a heartfelt elegy for her tombstone. Together, they had eight children, six of whom lived to adulthood. On 11 November , Tycho observed from Herrevad Abbey a very bright star, now numbered SN , which had unexpectedly appeared in the constellation Cassiopeia. Because it had been maintained since antiquity that the world beyond the Moon's orbit was eternally unchangeable celestial immutability was a fundamental axiom of the Aristotelian world-view , other observers held that the phenomenon was something in the terrestrial sphere below the Moon.
However, Tycho observed that the object showed no daily parallax against the background of the fixed stars. This implied it was at least farther away than the Moon and those planets that do show such parallax. He also found the object did not change its position relative to the fixed stars over several months, as all planets did in their periodic orbital motions, even the outer planets for which no daily parallax was detectable.
This suggested it was not even a planet, but a fixed star in the stellar sphere beyond all the planets. In , he published a small book, De nova stella  thereby coining the term nova for a "new" star we now classify this star as a supernova and we know that it is 7, light-years from Earth.
This discovery was decisive for his choice of astronomy as a profession. Tycho was strongly critical of those who dismissed the implications of the astronomical appearance, writing in the preface to De nova stella : " O crassa ingenia. O caecos coeli spectatores " "Oh thick wits. Oh blind watchers of the sky". The publication of his discovery made him a well-known name among scientists across Europe. Tycho continued with his detailed observations, often assisted by his first assistant and student, his younger sister Sophie Brahe. In , Tycho published the observations made in from his first observatory at Herrevad Abbey.

He then started lecturing on astronomy, but gave it up and left Denmark in spring to tour abroad. He first visited William IV, Landgrave of Hesse-Kassel 's observatory at Kassel, then went on to Frankfurt, Basel and Venice, where he acted as an agent for the Danish king, contacting artisans and craftsmen whom the king wanted to work on his new palace at Elsinore. Upon his return, the King wished to repay Tycho's service by offering him a position worthy of his family; he offered him a choice of lordships of militarily and economically important estates, such as the castles of Hammershus or Helsingborg.

But Tycho was reluctant to take up a position as a lord of the realm, preferring to focus on his science. He wrote to his friend Johannes Pratensis, "I did not want to take possession of any of the castles our benevolent king so graciously offered me. I am displeased with society here, customary forms and the whole rubbish".
Until then, Hven had been property directly under the Crown, and the 50 families on the island considered themselves to be freeholding farmers, but with Tycho Brahe's appointment as Feudal Lord of Hven, this changed. The court established Tycho's right to levy taxes and labor, and the result was a contract detailing the mutual obligations of lord and peasants on the island. Brahe envisioned his castle Uraniborg as a temple dedicated to the muses of arts and sciences, rather than as a military fortress; indeed, it was named after Urania , the muse of astronomy.
Construction began in with a laboratory for his alchemical experiments in the cellar. Uraniborg was inspired by the Venetian architect Andrea Palladio , and was one of the first buildings in northern Europe to show influence from Italian renaissance architecture.
When he realized that the towers of Uraniborg were not adequate as observatories because of the instruments' exposure to the elements and the movement of the building, he then constructed a second underground observatory at nearby Stjerneborg in The basement included an alchemical laboratory with 16 furnaces for conducting distillations and other chemical experiments. He created a system of ponds and canals to run the wheels of the paper mill. Tycho's instrument-maker Hans Crol also formed part of the scientific community on the island.
He observed the great comet that was visible in the Northern sky from November to January Within Lutheranism, it was commonly believed that celestial objects like comets were powerful portents, announcing the coming apocalypse, and in addition to Tycho's observations several Danish amateur astronomers observed the object and published prophesies of impending doom. He was able to determine that the comet's distance to Earth was much greater than the distance of the Moon, so that the comet could not have originated in the "earthly sphere", confirming his prior anti-Aristotelian conclusions about the fixed nature of the sky beyond the Moon.
He also realized that the comet's tail was always pointing away from the Sun. He calculated its diameter, mass, and the length of its tail, and speculated about the material it was made of. At this point, he had not yet broken with Copernican theory, and observing the comet inspired him to try to develop an alternative Copernican model in which the Earth was immobile. Pierre Gassendi wrote that Tycho also had a tame elk moose and that his mentor the Landgrave Wilhelm of Hesse-Kassel Hesse-Cassel asked whether there was an animal faster than a deer.
Tycho replied that there was none, but he could send his tame elk. When Wilhelm replied he would accept one in exchange for a horse, Tycho replied with the sad news that the elk had just died on a visit to entertain a nobleman at Landskrona. Apparently, during dinner, the elk had drunk a lot of beer, fallen down the stairs, and died. As part of Tycho's duties to the Crown in exchange for his estate, he fulfilled the functions of a royal astrologer. At the beginning of each year, he had to present an Almanac to the court, predicting the influence of the stars on the political and economic prospects of the year.
And at the birth of each prince, he prepared their horoscopes, predicting their fates.

In , Tycho's royal benefactor died, and a volume of Tycho's great two-volume work Astronomiae Instauratae Progymnasmata Introduction to the New Astronomy was published. The first volume, devoted to the new star of , was not ready, because the reduction of the observations of —3 involved much research to correct the stars' positions for refraction, precession, the motion of the Sun etc.
Besides the comet observations, it included an account of Tycho's system of the world. While at Uraniborg, Tycho Brahe maintained correspondence with scientists and astronomers across Europe. Thus, his correspondence was crucial to his research. Often, correspondence was not just private communication between scholars, but also a way to disseminate results and arguments and to build progress and scientific consensus.
Through correspondence, Tycho Brahe was involved in several personal disputes with critics of his theories. Prominent among them were John Craig , a Scottish physician who was a strong believer in the authority of the Aristotelian worldview, and Nicolaus Reimers Baer , known as Ursus, an astronomer at the Imperial court in Prague, whom Tycho accused of having plagiarized his cosmological model. Craig refused to accept Brahe's conclusion that the comet of had to be located within the aetherial sphere rather than within the atmosphere of Earth.
