In a lot of my spare time I do all manner of Halo things. Some end up as graphics here and sometimes I just gather into with which to make a new article. Last night it was some astronomy.
The Haloverse takes place in our galaxy with the reals stars of our nighttime sky. In the past we've been told of several star systems and the human, Forerunner, or Covenant colonies that fictionally exist there.
There's been a recent trend to not name systems after real stars and I imagine it's to keep 343i from having to define too much and potentially paint themselves in a corner. Things like the CAMS academy on Circinius IV which sounds astronomical, but is a made up place.
But that doesn't stop me from trying to figure out what I can using some knowledge of astronomy and tidbits found in the Halo novels, games, and comics.
Last night I figured out what real star system the colonies of New Jerusalem and Cygnus must be in. I'm going to do some further cross-checking tonight to make sure there are no other possibilities, but I'm about 90% sure I have the right star. If so, I may also be ale to nail down the star system that the colony Biko is a part of.
It's a small, mostly insignificant detail, but if puzzle pieces are dropped enough to make a picture, I love the challenge of assembling it. :)
