Before Copernicus started insisting that the sun was the center of our solar system, scientists like Tycho devised elaborate data charts showing the Earth at its center. Now designer Piotr Kaczmarek has created gorgeous diagrams comparing Tychonian and Copernican views.

You can see the Tychonian vs. Copernican models in motion - and fiddle with the view - via a movable chart atDigital Orrery.
:D

It is pretty cool how the spatial relationships work between both models... I just also found out I was born on a full moon cycle while Venus was directly in line between us and the sun.

All The tyconian did was make the sun orbit the earth... All the other planets still orbited the sun. How is that earth centered?

The Tychonian model is a compromise between the two other models (Ptolemaic & Copernican) - the Earth is the center of the universe, the sun revolves around the Earth, but the other planets revolve around the sun.
