This meant being assigned to the Bishop’s Palace in Lidzbark Warminski, approximately forty miles to the east-southeast of Frauenburg.

1. The discovery and significance of moons It would be meaningless to write about the discovery of our moon, the one that goes round the Earth—‘the Moon’, as I shall call it from now on because that’s its name. The Moon is almost as obvious as the Sun. Clouds permitting, we can see it in the evening sky nearly half the time. If we are awake early, there it is in the pre-dawn sky most of the rest of the time. It can often be spotted in daylight too. Making use of moons Jupiter’s moons orbit their planet in a
