Abstract

What makes both the early modern and the Victorian periods so interesting is not so much the changing theory as much as the intense nature of the observations. The supernova in Cassiopeia was the first one in over five centuries, and the brightest one in recorded history. The comet that followed only 5 years later was one of the brightest ever, and that in turn was followed by other comets and a second supernova in 1604.
