Aurell was a star located in the Auratera system of the Vorzyd sector, itself located in the Outer Rim Territories. The star was orbited by three planets, which included Auratera, and was located along the hyperlane known as the Salin Corridor. Although the Auratera system contained another star, Ryern, all three planets orbited the larger Aurell. Despite that, Ryern helped to illuminate Auratera's sky, which meant that nights could occur on the planet only when Aurell completely eclipsed Ryern.
The distance between the system's two stars varied over time, which affected Auratera's temperature. Sometimes, the stars appeared adjacent from the planet's surface, while at other times the stars did not appear together in the sky. When the stars were adjacent, Auratera saw particularly bright and hot days. Regardless of their proximity, Aurell was always brighter than Ryern, with the latter never reaching more than a third of the former's brightness.
