"Melancthon and Luther both believed the end was not far off," Katharine Firth notes, "and likely to come before 1600." (9) Hiroshi Ozawa notes that "eclipses were observed in England in 1598, once of the sun and twice of the moon, which stirred fresh popular speculation that the end of the world was close at hand." (10) These eclipses ominously followed "a sequence of apocalyptic signs in the nova of 1572, the great conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter in 1583, and the defeat of the Armada in 1588."
