A fun tradition among astronomers is trying to include the oldest citation possible in your work, especially in your PhD Thesis/dissertation/viva. I love this, as it helps keep our published history alive. Today I asked Astronomers on Twitter to dig out their PhDs and find their oldest references - I was very impressed with what they reported! My oldest reference was for the Carrington solar storm (1859), but other people's responses were a fascinating walk through history!
