The Japanese astronomy in the 7th and 8th centuries
In this short report, we compare the characters of the Japanese astronomies in the 7th and 8th centuries. We already analyzed the character of astronomy in 7th century in Tanikawa & Sôma using the astronomical records in the Nihongi. We review the result in section 2.1. It seems to the authors that the character of the Japanese astronomy in the 8th century has not fully been analyzed. Similar to the method used in ref., we study the records in the Shoku-Nihongi in the sense of independence from the Chinese records and whether records were based on observation or prediction. In this respect, we do not treat local phenomena such as meteors and meteorites nor atmospheric phenomea such as aurorae. We consider solar and lunar eclipses and comets in the 8th century.
