Excerpt from On the Connexion of the Physical Sciences

Physical astronomy is the science which compares and identifies the laws Of motion Observed on earth with the motions that take place in the heavens: and which traces, by an uninterrupted chain of deduction from the great principle that governs the universe, the revolutions and rotations Of the planets, and the oscillations (n. 4) Of the fluids at their surfaces; and which estimates the changes the system has hitherto undergone, or may hereafter experience - changes which require millions Of years for their accomplishment.
