Abstract

The greatest observational astronomer of the sixteenth century was Tycho Brahe. The instruments he built to measure the position of the stars were the most accurate instruments on Earth. Brahe is also remembered for supplying the data used by Johannes Kepler (1571–1630) to derive the Laws of Planetary Motion.
