Antares

Fig. 41.g : The beginning of a 79-year series. This figure shows the rétrogradation loops of Mars in the years 1006 and 1085. In 1006 there was only a single conjunction between the planet and the star. But 79 years later the loop is shifted some degrees towards the east, so that in 1085 a triple conjunction took place.
