The author of this totally obscur article should at first try to find out the difference between astrology and astronomy. Siffler 09:45, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

Without astrology there would be no astronomy.--KTo288 (talk) 06:02, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Can a wikipedian try to understand the meaning of these sentences, please?

However, considerable parts of the structure are found in the ruins, the stone building and the astrological sign which crosses the 28-meter wide observatory that determine the direction of the star are wide displays the the glorious prerequisite of this historical place .

At the time entering the observatory, a visitor is impressed by the precision of the astrological angles that once were based on the Meridian, and also by using Maragheh as the datum point for arranging time zones throughout the world. Siffler 12:37, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

Trubbles[edit]

Well, there is a lot wrong. How about starting with:

Maragha astronomers also realized that the Aristotelian view of motion in the universe being only circular or linear was not true, as the Tusi-couple showed that linear motion could also be produced by applying circular motions only.

This is incoherent. What is it trying to say? William M. Connolley (talk) 22:23, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

Visual Upgrade[edit]

Adding more pictures of the Maragheh observatory would greatly help people visualize the greatness of the observatory. A reader seeing pictures of the inside of the observatory and the tools of the observatory would help people understand that this observatory was at the top during its time. It would also be more visually appealing to draw readers into instead of seeing only the outside pictures of a dome. Heres a site with good pictures and more information if you wanted to update the page.
