June 18 1178 Impact Crater (1756 words)
An incredible eyewitness event which occurred on the Moon on June 18, 1178 was investigated by Jack Hartung, a State University of New York astronomer in a paper published in Meteoritics, The Journal of the Meteoritical Society, for September, 1976.
The present writer was given this report by men who saw it with their own eyes, and are prepared to stake their honor on an oath that they have made no addition or falsification in the above narrative.
Therefore Hartung concluded that this crater is the one formed on June 18, 1178.
Year 1178 (3410 words)
Evidence of the crossing of a cometary stream in the year 1178 A.D. There are at least two pieces of information that indicate that the Earth crossed a cometary stream during the late 11th and the 12th century, with a peak around the half of the 12th century.
Frequent and scaring appearances of large comets were indeed a main factor that contributed to the special psychological climate that led to the Crusades, which were often seen, at least at the popular level, as a means for atonement of sins, the divine wrath expressing itself through the menacing comets.
Around 1178 there is an important political discontinuity in the Japanese history, given by the passage of the political power, after a period of intense fighting, from the southern Taira dynasty (with capital Miako, now Kyoto), to the northern Minamoto dynasty (with capital Kamakura, near Edo, now Tokyo).
