Is that the final determination of what that machine does, eclipses? Seems a tremendous amount of work for such sparse occurrences.
Keeping in mind how important astronomy was in the ancient world, can you imagine the power a person could project by knowing ahead of time events like that?
So much we don't know about the ancient world, so much we don't know about our own origin.
