Purple Rain

   On 6 October 1646, a purple rain fell on Brussels and the downpour elicited scientific examination and explanation. The astronomer Godefroid Wendel, visiting Brussels, wrote the treatise Pluvia Purpurea Bruxellensis, which contained findings that sought to explain the phenomenon in terms of natural causes. In addition, the work contained discussions of other astronomical issues, including a defense of the theories of Copernicus.
