Shakespeare and Elizabethan Telescopy (2009)

The paper presents evidence that Shakespeare knew of properties of the Sun, Moon, planets, and stars that only telescopy reveals. The paper by Michael Gainer follows this one directly. Professor Gainer has built a Perspective Glass according the the prescription of Thomas Digges through which he can see most of the phenomena reported by Shakespeare. The Gainer paper (and the last page of the present article !!), are at https://ui.adsabs.harvard.edu/#abs/2009JRASC.103...18G/abstract
