Re: Astrape ekleipsis
The Vatican has a history of refusing to pay too much attention to astronomy. That is until they funded and built their own observatory.
Copernicus was dismissed as a heretic. As were Bruno and Galileo.
I don't believe it is a co-incedence that there is an eclipse on the day of the Popes funeral. I don't believe there is such thing as coincedence in this universe.
I'm sure there is some deeper symbolic meaning hidden somewhere in there.
It will probably be easier to see what that is after the event.
