The World




The 3 Stars of Sigilis

Prime Sigilis Dec 17, 2008

Sigilis exists in a Ptolomeic universe: the world sits at the center and the heavens revolve  around it. There are three stars that circle the world: the Red Star, X, which completes a revolution every 23311 seconds at as distance of 49,889,664 km (13,447+ km/s), the Green Star, X, which completes a revolution every 33161 seconds at as distance of 77,248,512 km (14,636+ km/s), and the Blue Star, X, which completes a revolution every 44711 seconds at as distance of 94,951,296 km (13,343+ km/s).

You may think: well that is all well and good, but I am no astronomer, what do I care?  The main sources of light in the world are from the three stars and their respective locations at any given time will be reflected in the color and quality of the light and the color of the sky.

You will also find that the dates and times used reflect the nature of a world circled around three axes by three separate stars. Years are marked by the timing of conjunctions of pairs of stars (as it is never possible for all three to conjunct).  An extensive ephemeris of major and minor conjunctions has been built from which the Sigilis calendar was born.

NB: Names for the three stars have yet to be determined. Make a suggestion in the comments below.
