    No, Columbus didn't "discover" that.

    I am curious what "crazy theories" you are referring to.

    There were a lot of Crazy theories until the proper Astronomy took hold towards the end of the last Millenium

     The Church used to be the Law on Astronomy

     And Strict adhearance to the Geocentric Theory was preached as it suited the Scriptures

     Even Galileo was put under house arrest for proposing the heresy of the Heliocentric Universe

    Galileo even found unofficially the Speed of light

    By using Jupters 4 Biggest sattelites, now named the Galilean moons

    Ganymede and Callisto, the two largest moons in the Solar System, Europa and Io

    He studied how they eclipsed and crossed the Jovian disc and the time taken

     It is still as accurate as the normal way

     We simply know better through over a hundred years of enlightenment

    We generally are an intelligent bunch and on here, well versed in Astronomy

    But it is sad these days that we still have Flat Earthers

    and Moon Hoaxers

    Columbus just sailed across the Atlantic looking for India

    No, and Columbus did NOT discover the Earth is a sphere. That was Copernicus who realized Earth's revolves, NOT ROTATES,  around the Sun, along with Tycho Brahe and Johannes Kepler. It was Ptolemy that had the Sun and planets and stars revolving around Earth, NOT Columbus.

    No. I think the Mayans discovered that long before Columbus did.
