Mr. Hughes,

The word average (as used) is talking about hours and days, not years. The date of -584 is confirmed by NASA and the Goddard Space Flight Center.

BCE and CE are of no value in the dating except that the value of one (1) is added to make up for the year zero.

The date and the event are correct. Mr. Pope should be pleased to add this to the 18th dynasty data bank. It is very possible that the 139 number used for Dog Star dating was actually the time of another solar eclipse in a different location.
