  1. In every Sci-Fi Roleplay, you will traverse the realms of space-time in order to fulfil the goal of your story, finding perilous and advantageous planets, life forms and species along the way. However, the bodies that make up your in game universe cannot be ignored. Stars, comets, meteors and meteor showers, asteroids and nebulae, your task is to design a celestial body under the following guidelines.

    What is the celestial body?

    How big is it?

    Does it have any specific colouring or distinctive features?

    Can it be seen by the naked eye?

    When can it usually be seen, if ever?
  2. What is the celestial body?: A large gas giant that never ignited to form a star
    How big is it?: About seventeen times the size of earth, 3,959 miles times seventeen equals 67,303 miles in radius.
    Does it have any specific colouring or distinctive features?: Being blue and red in color from the natural Xenon gases Hydrogen, Helium which tend to swirl around at the equator in large tornadoes. The polar caps of the planet are grey while most of the other bits of the planet are red and grey. The only blue is near the equator.
    Can it be seen by the naked eye?: If you have a naked eye in space, I'm sure you will have problems due to your body not being able to survive in a vacuum, but if you were in a space suite or ship and close enough, yes.
    When can it usually be seen, if ever?: It can be seen when you or I take the time to think of a solar system to put it in, because without a light source, space is a very dark place. Otherwise, It would have the same visual restrictions any free floating planet in space would.
