Kepler discovered that Planets moved in elliptical patterns, which disproved the Copernicus theory that planets moved in circular paths. He discovered this through Mars in his observations and calculations of its orbit. This astounding discovery lead his to the creation of his First Law entitled "The Law of Orbits" which states that planets orbit the sun in ellipse, with the sun at one focus.
