Ancient Astronomical Measurements

By using a reductive approach to astronomy, the Greek scientists measured the sizes of the moon, the earth, and the sun as well as the earth-moon and earth-sun distances. In some of these measurements, they came astonishingly close to the current values. Although they were off by a considerable amount in the size of the sun and its distance from earth, their conclusion about the motion of the earth around the sun and the enormity of the distances of the fixed stars from earth were prophetic.
