                "Epicycles" are the fiction dreamed up by pre-Copernican astronomers to permit them to discount the evidence of their own eyes - the observed motion of the nearby planets is clearly at odds with anything other than a heliocentric view of the universe, but until the 17th century these complex, almost coiled orbits were the only thing that could keep the earth in its rightful place at the centre of the solar system.
