Paragraph Test - 24

Answer the questions according to the reading passages.
When did man first start to think about the stars? The answer lies in pre-history. Most of the early people who noticed the movements of heavenly bodies in the night skies were probably hunters or shepherds. They could not write, so we have no idea of what they saw and thought. Everybody would have noticed the daily rising and setting of the Sun, and how it was lower in the sky in winter than in summer. They would see the regular changes in shape, the phases, of the Moon, and wonder what was happening. People in those days were the priests. We know that Ancient Egyptian priests used to study the movements of heavenly bodies in a systematic way some 2000 years BC. And the Chinese invented the 365-day calendar year, which we now use, as early as 1600BC.
