Item description for East-Asian Archaeoastronomy: Historical Records of Astronomical Observations of China, Japan and Korea (Earth Space Institute Book Series) by Zhenoao Xu, W. Pankenier & Yaotiao Jiang...

Historical astronomical records can play an important role in modern research, especially in the case of ancient Chinese observational data: sunspot and aurora records are important for the study of solar variability; solar and lunar eclipse records for the study of the Earth's rotation; records of Comet Hally for the study of orbital evolution; "guest star" records for the study of supernova remnants; planetary conjunction records for research in astronomical chronology. In the past, Western scientists have not been able to exploit these valuable data fully because the original records were difficult to gather and interpret, and complete English translations have not been available. East-Asian Archaeoastronomy is the first comprehensive translation into English of such historical records for modern research.

Reviews - What do customers think about East-Asian Archaeoastronomy: Historical Records of Astronomical Observations of China, Japan and Korea (Earth Space Institute Book Series)?

Great resource  Jun 13, 2002
Every record of an eclipse, sunspot, nova, auroral event, or other cosmic occurrence from Korea, Japan, and China is documented here -- in English and Chinese. People familiar with Early China will feel right at home with this material; people who are new to East Asian archeoastronomy will find a gold mine of information extremely well documented and explained.

You can't ask for much better than this kind of work.
