Grand Conjunction of 1063 Raven III Wrath

Recommended Posts

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.

Seris and Valrei are sneaking up on Jackal from below the Eastern horizon so we don't get to watch them moving into position.  Shortly after I write this both Seris and Valrei will disappear from the daytime sky and be hidden from sight in the vicinity of the Eastern pole until they rise to join Jackal starting on Luck day of Week III.

That this is even a thing in a videogame amazes me. One more reason to love Wurm.

When I looked an hour ago Valrei was showing a sliver above the horizon.   The next two or three Wurm nights will afford much better viewing since Valrei will be completely above the horizon.

 

Please take screen shots and share them; I have to be at work so will be unable to do so myself.

My first opportunity to view the conjunction was two whole Wurm days after it looked its best.  This is the best picture I was able to get.
