Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe died. He studied the motions of the planets in the Solar System. Brahe was a very good observer. His observations were some five times more accurate than the best data available at the time. He published his own model of the universe, so called Tychonic system. It was a combination of the new Copernican and old Ptolemaic system.
