The Comet of 1533

As I’ve shown in the past, f68r1 depicts the Great Comet of 1533 as it was seen on 18 July 1533.

Recently I questioned why it is there? What connection does it have with the central event of f68r3? Now I know.  On f68r3 the moon is shown in an astrological position of 07Taurus, and in conjunction with Almach, also at 07Taurus.

f67v1 is Tycho’s supernova of 1572, and f68v2 shows the framing stars. SN1572 was also at an astrological postion of 07Taurus.

Advancing the comet’s movements revealed it passed within 2° of the supernova’s position on 25 July 1533, and pointed at where it would appear. The accompanying picture from Starry Night shows the movement.

This was not a prediction, but evidence the Voynich was created at a later date.

Some new information about the meaning of the folio has come up, so the page for it (link above) has been updated.

This may be another aspect of the event shown on f68r3; the moon at an astrological position of 07Tau on 7 Dec 1486 and in conjunction with both Almach and the future postion of Tycho’s supernova (f67v1 and f68v2).

New Finding for the d’Oresme-f68v3 Connection

Looking closely at the places where the spirals cut across the waves on f68v3, one can see that the waves are behind the spirals and only partially hidden.

Using Paint.NET I have drawn in the covered parts of the waves and counted them, adding a number to each wave. The result is 43 waves.

A number was added to each wave on the d’Oresme diagram. The result: 43 waves.

This makes the possibility of a coincidence rather remote.
