New Paper

In the J.VS Library, some new files by me have been added:

The paper The Event Depicted on VMs Folio 68r1 presents evidence that the folio shows the Great Comet of 1533 as seen on 18 July.

Additionally there are two animated .gifs showing that the person drawn in the upper circle (the comet) might be Copernicus, who wrote a treatise about it. A third animated .gif shows that the person in the center of f67v1 might be Tycho Brahe.
