...approximately, Neptune was "discovered". Since Neptune's orbital period is 164 Earth years, that means it has finally arrived back at the point in its orbit where it was correctly recognized in 1846.

But, remember, Neptune: being a planet is a privilege, not a right. Remember Pluto.

While we're on the subject (sorta): did anyone see the Geminid meteor showers last night? I'm too old now to stay up 'til 4am looking for them, but I hope someone saw them.

So back then this period would have been described as "eight score and 4 years"?

Yah, I did. I got on my back in the yard at about 9PM, 11PM, and 2:30AM. I definitely saw the most at the last session, where I saw a meteor about every 2.5 minutes or so. It was neat, but not the best shower I've ever seen. My wife reminded me that she owns a thermal sleeping bag, so I ought to be OK to keep looking up throughout the winter.
