7 September 14

Special notes in world exploration: yesterday (6 September) marked the 522nd anniversary of Columbus' leaving the Canary Islands (last port before sailing across the Atlantic) and the 492nd anniversary of the arrival of the first of Magellan's ships (circumnavigating the globe). Note that in 3014 we (?) will celebrate the 1522nd anniversary of Columbus' 1492 voyage and the 1492nd anniversary of Magellan's 1522 circumnavigation.
