Just pointing out the obvious here, but if you are updated on recent events within astronomy, this article needs work. It's as if it is 12 years old! -126.96.36.199 (talk)— Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs) 2010-07-02T00:12:56?
Where is Stonehenge? There was a mention of it but I removed it because it was misplaced at the beginning of the article with a template box in the middle of the text. Someone obviously messed up. A. Z. Colvin • Talk 01:22, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
Clanging rhetoric is appearing at top of the article. Galileo never "invented" the telescope. Lippershey never said that he "wanted" to do anything. Pagan polytheists in ancient Babylon and Egypt made contributions to astronomy. I am suprised that this spam has been here for so long. Wikipedia should be neutral, not spam for any one denomination. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 06:33, 5 May 2018 (UTC)

Galileo refined the telescope to the extent where it could be used for the 1st time in astronomical observation. I don't know who Lippershey was. The ancient Babylonian and Egyptian astronomers/astrologers were Pagan polytheists. 2601:580:106:BAFB:1F4:2D73:EFDB:83EC (talk) 15:36, 12 February 2019 (UTC)
6 BC April 17 - Jesus was born & Magi's observationsEdit
I added... 6 BC - The Magi - probably Persian astronomers/astrologers (Astrology) - observed a planetary conjunction on Saturday (Sabbath) April 17, 6 BC that signified the birth of a great Hebrew king: Jesus.<ref^Molnar, Michael, The Star of Bethlehem - The Legacy of the Magi (Rutgers Univ. Pres, 1999)</ref^
Hey, can we change the BCs and ADs to more neutral names like BCE and CE please? Just because I think Wikipedia should be gender, race and religion neutral. Thanks. P.S. I just need a bunch of people to support my idea.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Swaggerding (talk • contribs) 21:32, 28 February 2019 (UTC)
The first date is obviously wrong, as the article about Maya astronomy states that “the mythical creation date in the Maya calendar is August 11, 3114 BC”—they can’t have discovered something right after the world was created! CielProfond (talk) 22:50, 3 March 2020 (UTC)
