This series of notes written by James Dinwiddie focuses on astronomy. Dinwiddie discusses the properties of the moon and outlines the lunar cycle as well as the phenomenon of comets. He provides a list of well known astronomers and their publications including Isaac Newton, Rene Descartes, Johannes Kepler, Socrates, Nicolas Copernicus, Otto Guernicke, Galileo, Ptolemy, and Edmond Halley.
These notes written by James Dinwiddie cover several topics including aquaducts, astronomy, and Roman history. In the astronomy notes, Dinwiddie mentions the seasons, the nautical almanac, the equinoxes, and the sun's gravity. This file consists of thirteen pages of notes.
File contains six color images of celestial objects taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. Three of the images are autographed by Christian Ready, a professional Astronomer who worked for the Space Telescope Science Institute. Christian Ready was the Toastmaster at the third annual Maritime Science Fiction Festival in 1999.
