Around BC Greek philosopher and astronomer Pythagoras carefully observed the narrow boundary line—the terminator—between the dark and light hemispheres of the Moon. Based on how the terminator curved across the surface of the Moon, he correctly surmised the Moon must be a sphere. A few centuries later, around BC, Aristotle took Pythagoras observations even further.
Moon Phases – Lunar Calendar
By observing the shadow of the Earth across the face of the Moon during a lunar eclipse, Aristotle reckoned that the Earth was also a sphere. He reasoned, incorrectly however, that the Earth was fixed in space and that the Moon, Sun and Stars revolved around it.
He also believed the Moon was a translucent sphere that traveled in a perfect orbit around Earth. In the early s Astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus developed a model of the Solar System where Earth and the other planets orbited around the Sun, and the Moon orbited around Earth.
These observations were revolutionary. Copernicus and Galileo upended the long-held Aristotelian view of the heavens as a place where Earth was the center of the Universe and the Moon was a smooth, polished orb. Telescopes and new minds helped scientist understand that the Earth and planets orbited around the Sun and the Moon was a battered and cratered satellite held in our own orbit.

Indeed, Tilles may well have invented a new genre--the Kabbalistic-Chasidic Story--whose enchanting blend of spiritual aromas may well explain why a new Tilles tale in the e-mail inbox is such a weekly delight for his thousands of subscribers. This is a work that is sure to become a classic of modern Chasidic literature.
