Johannes was born on the 27th of December in 1571, in a small town in Germany called Weil Der Stadt. He grew up next to his 2 older brothers and his sister.
When Kepler was 4 years he suffered a lot from health issues, his eyesight was very poor and he suffered from smallpox for a period of time. When he was 5, his dad Heinrich Kepler died fighting as a mercenary.
When he was 9 years old his mom took him outside and he was inspired by the red moon in the lunar eclipse at that time to become an astronomer. He never forgot this moment of his life.
