Astronomers
borndied
1754, Mar 11828, May 11
a Dutch astronomer. Arjen Roelofs observed four transits of Mercury. For three of these he made accurate predictions of the start and end times. His observations did not correspond to the orbital elements that were known at the time. If he had made this better known, a more accurate orbit for Mercury could have been calculated, but he was too modest.
