Phenomena of the Solar System

Nice example of Doppelmayr's Phaenomena map, illustrating and array of models of the Solar System.

At the center of the map is an illustration of the Earth orbiting the Sun, illustrating a system for calculating the number of days the earth takes to orbit the sun, based upon Copernicus.

Around the central model, an array of 7 models of the solar system, showing various geo-centric, heliocentric and other models, including:

  • The System of Ptolemy and  King Alfonso X of Castile (23 November 1221 – 4 April 1284) 
  • Plutrach
  • Plato
  • Porphyry of Tyre
  • Sec. Sebastiani Clerici
  • Jacobi Coccaei
  • William Gilbert
