Astronomers
borndied
1723, Feb 171762, Feb 20
a German astronomer famous for his studies of the Moon. His first important astronomical work was a careful investigation of the libration of the moon, and his chart of the full moon (published in 1775) was unsurpassed for half a century. But his fame rests chiefly on his lunar tables, communicated in 1752, with new solar tables, and published in the transactions of the Royal Society of Sciences and Humanities at Göttingen.
