A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. On my desk, I have a work station.

Apparently, there are 773 asteroids with a diameter of 50 km or larger, but I found it on Google, so caveat emptor.

763 - Bruide, king of Foirtriu, dies.

Presumably also a solar eclipse, as also noted is “A dark sun at the third hour of day.”

That's innteresting! I have doubts, however. The authoritative website lists four Solar eclipses for 763, one annular on the Southern hemispherre, and three partial ones on the extremely Northern and Southern latitudes. Two of them would have been observeable to a dedicated stargazer in Scotland, but I very much doubt anyone would have describe the Sun as "black". On 55-60ish latitudes, the eclipses would have been partial with maybe 30 or so % occultation. That is not usually noticed spontaneously.

Otherwise,

Ah, it was actually in 764 - not sure why it's listed under 763. A paper about such astronomical stuff in such old Irish sources says this about it:

Solar eclipse at 9:55 on 4 June 764. Rs=15.7’, Rm=15.2’, Sep.=3’. Track=S. Atlantic, S.
British Isles, Poland. Sunrise at 4:01 and sunset at 20:51 implies that the eclipse developed during
the fourth hour to a maximum at the start of the fifth hour; Fletcher and Mac Carthy both made this
identification


Oh, and:
