Edition Notes

This work is a critical reply to the work of Eusebio Francisco Kino's theory on the great comet of 1680, which appeared in his Exposición astronómica de el cometa, que el año de 1680. por los meses de noviembre, y diziembre, y este año de 1681. por los meses de enero y febrero, se ha visto en todo el mundo, y le ha observado en la ciudad de Cadiz, first printed in Mexico City, 1681. It is also a response to Martin de la Torre's Manifesto Critstiano en favor de los cometas, of which there is no publication history, and which is excerpted in this work.

The great comet of 1680, also called C/1680 V1, Kirch's Comet, and Newton's Comet, has the distinction of being the first comet discovered by telescope. It was discovered by Gottfried Kirch in 1680 and became one of the brightest comets of the 17th century.
