comment How bright was the AGN eruption at the center of the Milky Way ~2 Ma ago?
I assume they're referring to apparent magnitude here. If so it would be good to add mention of that and note that (if I'm understanding, despite the tone of the quote) it would have been quite bright to terrestrial observers: brighter than any planet or even the "brightest historical" SN (SN 1006). Is that a correct interpretation?

comment How accurate are Mayan astronomical “ephemerides”?
As the title states, question is about ephemerides: how accurately it could say (even in its day) "XXXX body will be at RA YYY, DEC ZZZZ".

@innisfree: The book is a very basic introduction, so it doesn't really address these issues.
