Those of us who occasionally leave our mines and look toward the sky have noticed that the regular eclipses of Sol by Jackal no longer occur. In fact the motions of the moons are significantly different since the release of the new client. The backdrop of stars has shifted too. Before I invest *alot* of time in screen shots, vector algebra and spherical trigonometry it would be good to know if these changes were deliberate or if they just happened inadvertently. The latter is a very real possibility since a change in direction of star motion was one of the last fixes put in before the client release. The star motions weren't automatically right in the new client so it is reasonable to think that active attention would have been required for the moons as well. And the nature of their current motions opposite that of Sol and the stars inclines me to think they could use a correction too. Could someone on staff please drop a reply indicating whether or not the new motions of the moons are the intended ones?
Those interested in the Wurmian sky should make a note of an upcoming conjunction of all three of Wurm's large moons. Best viewing will be at about 20:00 on Wrath day, week 3 of the Raven; moons will be nicely grouped in the Eastern sky shortly after sunset at that time. But any time within a few (Wurm) days before and after best viewing the sky should still look interesting. This will occur more or less in the middle of Apple season so if you are out and about harvesting apples, get out from under the trees somewhere with a view of the Eastern horizon. According to my forecasting It is 20:00:00 on Wrath day in week 3 of the Raven's starfall in the year of 1063. Jackal: alt=+17.7, azm=-92.3 Seris: alt=+32.2, azm=-74.0 Valrei: alt=+11.0, azm=-85.9 This event is probably as good as they ever get. Assuming of course that the new client retains the current moon positions if it is released in the interim. Last time I looked the test client showed the moons in different places than the production client. FYI the corresponding terrestrial time is approximately 2017-01-23T08:07:13.750-0600. So early afternoon for western Europe and morning for central USA.
The College of Astonomical Science at the University of Wurm at Release is pleased to be able to share the results of its investigation of the orbital motions of Seris and Valrei. The most exciting result is the ability to predict transits of Seris across the face if Valrei. https://sites.google.com/site/universityofwurmatrelease/wurm-astronomy/wurm-s-polar-moons
