The Astronomers Of Babylon
by: Haidar Albaghdadi


The astronomers of Babylon were a special group of scribes who observed the movements of the stars and planets.


The astronomers had many
different responsibilities. They recorded their observations about the
daily, monthly and yearly position of the stars and planets. They
advised the king about how their observations affected the calendar.
And they advised the king about how omens seen on earth or in the skies might effect future events.
Over
hundreds of years, the astronomers kept records and compiled archives
of information about stars, planets and omens. The archives could be
consulted by later astronomers to help them explain and interpret their
own observations of the world around them.
