The Eyes in the Dark is a binary star system located in the Deep Periphery.[1]

System Description[edit]

The Eyes in the Dark is a significant astronomical feature in the anti-spinward Deep Periphery. Located approximately 980 light-years from Terra, beyond the main body of the Aquila Rift, the location of the astronimical feature was released by Interstellar Expeditions on charts in 3095.[2] Named by Explorer Corps, The Eyes in the Dark is a binary star system where both stars are red giants, massive ancient stars, one of which is believed to be within five to ten million years time of core collapse, which would lead to a Type II supernova.[1]

Notes[edit]

The Eyes in the Dark was first identified in 2012 with the publication of Interstellar Players 3: Interstellar Expeditions. Other than the astrogeographical location of The Eyes in the Dark, no information was provided in the system; in the absence of further information on the Deep Periphery no further detail is likely to be available on The Eyes in the Dark.
