I have shamelessly cribbed a list from Greek mathematics since most astronomers at the time were mathematicians. I am not sure if some are actually astronomers but it gives a starting place for expanding, and they all have articles so are easy to check. Maestlin 04:11, 14 March 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Alexandria-sagan.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Alexandria-sagan.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Greek names?[edit]

From the subsection The planets in early Greek Astronomy:

"Five planets can be seen with the naked eye: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn."

This is true; however, the names given are the Roman names, which came along considerably later. As this article concerns ancient Greek Astronomy, it would be helpful to know what names ancient Greek astronomers gave to these "wanderers". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.95.43.249 (talk) 18:45, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
