Graphical Timeline

The written file of my dates for the Astro folios is fine, but here they are laid out on a timeline for better presentation.

Voynich Timeline

The tightness of the date clustering surprised me too.

The 1533 comet may be within the Zodiac range, as it is within 76 years (1° of precession) of 1471.
