    I would like to formally announce the creation of www.sotaastronomy.com and to invite anyone interested in stopping by and having a look.

    The purpose of this site is to act as a resource for New Britannian astronomers and will ultimately contain everything I've learned studying the skies above Novia.

    It will also act as a home for the New Britannia Astronomer's Society.. (there I went ahead and said it).. yes there will be a group associated with the site. Anyone is welcome to join as it will be a loose association of players who share a common interest in our night skies. Details to be worked out another time.. but mainly I just wanted to get the site up and going.

    There is quite a bit I haven't included yet as much of the data is now in flux with Portalarium returning to work on the astronomy system. So what is up now is mainly a basic primer. I hope to add a lot more in the future, but please be patient as I have many hats to wear and this is mainly a side project for me. :)

    As you've probably noticed there are no stars in the sky right now.. least none I've seen.. so no events this release.. BUT the event will return with the sky. :) Probably same day and time.. OR.. now that we have no more wipes I may start scheduling events with the Novian Academy and player built observatories. Which, when they are built I will certainly promote on the site. :)

    The site looks great and very informative. I cant imagine how you worked it all out, amazing. I like the fact that they have produced this detailed part of the world, and not really given it any promotion. 99% of people will look and just think sky and stuff going on but as you have worked out, there's a lot more detail to it all. Good work by you and them as well.

    I believe that the Sun or Novia is in a elliptical orbit which would explain our shorter night times and our longer daytimes o_O...

    Great work Bowen! Can't wait to see how this develops through the years :) I was wondering what you've been up to lately, now I know!

    Definitely an excellent resource for New Britannian Stargazers ( dang... is that a guild name or what! :p )

    Oh this isn't the half of it.. unfortunately, despite all my grand ideas and schemes I am also a master procrastinator or everything on my plate would be done by now. lol

    This particular site should prove to be an interesting and worthwhile endeavor.. but also hopefully one that will mostly take care of itself.. much like the next website I'm going to announce (if I ever get around to filling in the initial content). ;) But first.. much play SotA for at least 40+ hours.. I have 3 main characters to level up.. (and also get around to posting their bios which I should've done weeks ago :p).
