Some consider Tycho Brache to be the greatest observer of astronomy of all time. He firmly believed that accurate observations was the key to improving the study of stars, and with the aid of the King of Denmark, he established the observatory, Uraniburg, on the island of Hven, which was considered the best observatory in Europe. Brache studied the supernova of 1572, the comet of 1577 and the motions of the planets. Basing his thinking on traditional Ptolemic views, Brache developed a system in which the planets revolved around the Sun, which in turn revolved around a stationary Earth. Tycho Brache was also the mentor of Joannes Kepler, who would later go against Brache's theories and develop the three laws on planetary motion. [ISTS]
