The Astral Sea encompasses the heavens and all they contain. Flashes of color, streaks of light, and strange blossoms in the dark of night excite the imagination of the world’s inhabitants. Crossing the dome of the world is the Ring of Ao, a wide swath of golden dust stretching from one horizon to the next. During the day, the ring is faint; at night, it is a brilliant belt of scintillating specks weaving through the heavens. Two moons hang like jewels in the night sky, one huge (Khonsu), the other small and distant (Elatha). Each moon moves through its phases waxing and waning with each other. Farther out lie the stars. Silent guardians of the greatest mysterious of the outer realms. Mortals gather these distant lights into constellations, making them gods, omens, and portents of events to come. Finally, beyond even the stars, lie the farthest reaches, the endless expanse of the Astral Sea.
