Cleaned up the article to reflect the fact that "Astronomers added epicycles to epicycles" is a myth.ChrisB (talk) 04:19, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

I have heard that making a perfect model of the Ptolemaic vision of an Earth-centered universe is possible with roughly 75 epicycles.The last ones are to accommodate relativity. Stars circling around the Earth? of course that violates the speed of light, so stellar distances must be miscalculated. Somebody must have had too much free time.Occam's razor is severely violated.
