Jens Buus. When the time of successive eclipse of Jupiter's moon Io are recorded, it turns out that there are systematic and periodic deviations from the expected values. It was found (by Romer) that this can be explained by assuming that the velocity of light is finite and that its value can be derived from the observations. This talk explains in some detail how this is done, and how various complications can affect the result.
