On This Day in OTHER weather history!
On this day in 1546, Tycho Brahe, Danish astronomer whose work in developing astronomical instruments and in measuring and fixing the positions of stars paved the way for future discoveries, was born in Knudstrup, Scania, Denmark. He died in 1601. Source: Britannica.
On this day in 1963, American singer and pianist Dinah Washington died at the age of 39. An autopsy later showed a lethal combination of secobarbital and amobarbital had contributed to her death. Washington gave herself the title of “Queen of the Blues”. She had her first top ten pop hit in 1959 with a version of ‘What a Diff’rence a Day Made’, and then two successful duets in 1960 with Brook Benton, ‘Baby (You’ve Got What It Takes)’ and ‘A Rockin’ Good Way (To Mess Around and Fall in Love).
