Other Solar and Lunar Phenomena

In addition to solar-related atmospheric phenomena and eclipses, other solar and lunar phenomena impact ancient astronomy. Solar flares and sunspots are among the more noticeable events, although they are best seen when the Sun is near the horizon. Lunar luminescence had at least the potential of being seen. Appulse and occultation events of a particular object are like eclipses in that they are repeatable and are directly affected by the lunar long-term 18y6 nodal regression. Finally, large meteoritic impacts on the Moon have the potential for being visible, and at least one is reported in medieval annals (see ยง5.3.2).
