Summary
First spotted in 1645, the non-existing moon was observed more than a dozen times until late eighteenth century. Although few astronomers believed in the existence of the moon after about 1770, it continued to attract attention for another century. This book details the history of one of astronomy's many spurious objects, the satellite of Venus
