Invention4004 BCEThe universe was created in the evening of this day according to Irish Archbishop James Ussher who based this date on a chronology he worked out of the descendants of Adam as listed in the Bible.
Astronomical Event2136 BCEThe Chinese "Book of History" records the beheading of two court astrologers because they failed to predict a solar eclipse. This marks the earliest recorded eclipse of the sun. Chinese astrologers continued to loose their heads until about 200 AD, when they had analyzed the moon's orbit sufficiently to reliably predict eclipses.
