Mikołaj Kopernik Nicholas Copernicus- Mikołaj Kopernik Born Feb. 19, 1473, Toruń, Poland. He was a Polish astronomer who proposed that the planets have the Sun as the fixed point to which their motions are to be referred; that the Earth is a planet which, besides orbiting the Sun annually, also turns once daily on its own axis; and that very slow, long-term changes in the direction of this axis account for the precession of the equinoxes

The Baltic Sea The Baltic Sea is located in Northern Europe. It is bounded by the Scandinavian Peninsula, the mainland of Europe, and the Danish islands. It drains into the Kattegat by way of the Øresund, the Great Belt and the Little Belt. The Kattegat continues through the Skagerrak into the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. The Baltic Sea is artificially linked to the White Sea by the White Sea Canal and to the North Sea by the Kiel Canal. The Baltic is bordered on its northern edge by the Gulf of Bothnia, on its northeastern edge by the Gulf of Finland, and on its eastern edge by the Gulf of Riga.Northern EuropeScandinavian PeninsulaEuropeDanishKattegat ØresundGreat Belt Little BeltSkagerrak North SeaAtlantic OceanWhite Sea Canal Kiel CanalGulf of BothniaGulf of FinlandGulf of Riga
