Birchat HaChama -- Interesting

A thjanks to kmellion for reminding me that Birchat Hachama is this year. Reading the Wikipedia entry, I felt a vague memory stir in me that the time the Talmud was computing this was a time when other cultures in the region were dealing with some new astronomical/astrological calculations and observations with regard to the motion of the Heavenly bodies. Not remembering in enough detail, however.
