In the first millennium BC, Babylonian astronomers used developments of these mathematical methods to calculate planetary and lunar phenomena such as the dates of the first and last visibilities of the planets, and eclipses of the sun and moon.

102. Velikovsky And Planetary Catastrophe [SIS Internet Digest $]
... because I have (along with fellow researcher Ev Cochrane) spent many years examining the images of Venus around the world. And I can say without the slightest equivocation that wherever astronomical traditions of Venus are preserved in any detail, Venus is the mythical Great Comet, appearing in the sky at a time of world-destroying catastrophe. You will find this identity confirmed ... . In fact, literally all of the astronomical hieroglyphs for "the comet" are simultaneously attached to Venus and to the revered great goddess, who is Venus in the first astronomies. To apply common-sense rules of logic, one should start with the obvious: the symbols cited above are the acknowledged, most frequently-employed hieroglyphs for the comet in the ancient world ... ; the pioneering psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud; and of course Albert Einstein, who edited the physics and mathematics sections of Velikovsky's publication Scriptas Universitatis. But was Velikovsky himself a physicist or astronomer? No. His training was in law, economics, history and medicine. Did he pretend to be a physicist or astronomer? No. But intensive historical research did lead ...

... “expansion of the universe”— it is just an intrinsic, and yet unexplained, quality of the quasar. One might have expected alarm bells to go off within the astronomical community, since much of its funding rests on the assumed credibility of its theoretical starting point. But the responses have ranged from nonchalance to outright denial. Leading scientific institutions still ... dense galactic core was a quasar. Prevailing ideology did not permit a quasar to occupy that position, and its presence threatened to shatter one of the most cherished themes of mainstream astronomy: the Big Bang. For those who wonder what all the commotion was about, we offer this brief refresher. The rationale for the Big Bang rests substantially on an interpretation ... by the astronomers' own admissions, inescapable. And they became the foundation for modern cosmology — the so-called “Queen of the Sciences”. There were dissenters, however. Astronomer Halton Arp, the leading authority on peculiar galaxies, presented evidence that quasars are not extraordinarily bright objects at the outer edges of the universe. They are physically and energetically connected ...

... located right next to it, not many light-years behind, can be found in visible links to the galaxy. There was, and still is, strong resistance from the conventional astronomical community to this thesis, however logical it may sound to the non-astronomer, to the extent that Arp's papers have had a hard time to get published, getting incredible comments from ... Velikovsky would be pleased by the idea and that he deserved immense credit for using history and myth to deduce the importance of electricity and magnetism in celestial physics. The history of astronomy would, Whelton felt, remember him kindly for this achievement but what about the history of history? Will his ideas on revising ancient chronology be remembered or forgotten? He doubted ... the bright idea of locating the switch which was hidden away in a cupboard. The sixty or so attendees included many well-known faces and some new ones, even a young Chinese astronomer who had come all the way from Beijing to hear Halton Arp. SIS Chairman, Trevor Palmer, welcomed us and introduced the first speaker, Halton Arp, on 'Observational Cosmology ...

... if we consider her monuments, came first in the order of time. I have next to show that in the earliest monuments we have evidences of the existence and utilisation of astronomical knowledge.

... made between the line and the magnetic north (or south), as in the azimuth compass. What we really do by means of such an instrument is to determine the astronomical meridian by means of a magnetic meridian. Here some definitions will not be out of place.

As is perfectly clear from Professor Rose's articles, the arch-manipulators of the data on the tablets have been the uniformitarian scholars, in their attempts to make the evidence conform to conventional astronomical theory.
