Best Answer

Galileo's observations with his telescope supported the concept of heliocentricism. He noted that the satellites of Jupiter and Venus, based on their range of phases, did not match geocentricism supported by Ptolemy. He noted that based on these findings, that the Heliocentric theory was correct.

Did Galileo Galilei view the solar system geocentric or heliocentric?

Heliocentric.


How did Galileo's observations support the heliocentric system?

Galileo's telescopic observations of the 4 large moons of Jupiter and the phases of Venus helped support the heliocentric model of the solar system developed by Copernicus. Copernicus predicted that all phases would be visible since the orbit of Venus around the Sun would cause its illuminated hemisphere to face the Earth when it was on the opposite side of the Sun and to face away from the Earth when it was on the Earth-side of the Sun. In contrast, the geocentric model of Ptolemy predicted that only crescent and new phases would be seen since Venus was thought to remain between the Sun and Earth during its orbit around the Earth. Galileo's observations of the phases of Venus proved that it orbited the Sun and lent support to (but did not prove) the heliocentric model.

What are the geocentric and heliocentric theories of the universe?

The Geocentric or Ptolemaic Model put the earth at the center of the Universe. The Heliocentric Model postulated by Copernicus and, before him, Aristarchus, places the Sun at the center of the Solar System. Galileo's observations proved the validity of the Heliocentric Model.


Who discovered the heliocentric solar system?

Galileo Galilei did a lot to prove it. Before that, Copernicus came up with the heliocentric theory.
