Space Reflection #1

This Article, that can be found on my teachers ‘blog; antsclass. Is about how 3 different ancient civilisations discovered different things about astronomy.
There were 3 different civilisations that found out a few things about astronomy, Babylon, Maya and the Greeks. Babylon had discovered how to make such things as calendars and such, but I would also believe they created the system of how time works. An astrologer by the name of tamely that was born in Egypt while under the rule of the romans, discovered a system called the `Ptolemaic system`, which suggested that the earth was in the centre of the solar system which many believed, but now it is deemed false. Although he got a lot of his knowledge from a man called hiparcus. A question that I have and am sure a lot of other people have is how did they figure all this out in the ancient times, even if it was incorrect?
