I live in a city where the sky is often orange when cloudy and when it isn’t cloudy, we can generally only see the very brightest stars. It does make me cross that light pollution spoils the night skies for so many of us, so I was strangely pleased to see the Northern Hemisphere constellations reflected in lotro’s night skies.
The lotro lorebook entries explain that our constellations are the same as the constellations in middle-earth but that we now know them by different names:
(current name ~ middle earth name)
Orion ~ Menelmacar, the Swordsman of the Sky
the Pleiades ~ Remmirath, the Netted Stars
Big Dipper ~ the Seven Stars, the Sickle of the Valar
The sun was known as Anor and the moon as Ithil. Have you spotted any other constellations?
