Secrets of the Taroc Valley
Abusun, also called the White Woman, is the largest of the moons. It glows white and appears around twice the size of Earth’s moon. Abusun has a lunar cycle of thirty days, and is used to mark the months, with the new moon marking the first day of each new month. Abusun’s orbit is slightly erratic, during summer it remains visible for 7 hours, during spring and autumn for 8½ hours and during winter for 10 hours. It is called the White Woman because its cycle matches the menstrual cycle of most intelligent races.
Nihon, also called the Blue Day, is around a quarter the size of Abusun. It always rises at midday and sets at midnight, once every twelve hours. It has a cycle of twenty one days. As befits its nickname, Nihon has a blue sheen, which sages believe results from massive sheets of water that engulf it.
Venlo, the Red Moon, called the Harbinger. Venlo appears to grow and shrink with each season. When it is full, it is closest to the world, around half the size of Abusun, and marks the changing of the seasons. 45 days later it will be around half the size of Nihon, and mark the mid point. When it is full it can be seen in the sky for nine hours. When it is at its smallest, it can be seen for eighteen hours
