Ciratu was a star located in the star system of the same name, a part of the Immerian Outback sector in the Expansion Region, far from the region's trade routes. It was orbited by six spheres made up of rock and iron which were known as the Ciratu Spheres. The spheres were filled with tunnels, and were believed to have been created by an ancient species known as the Celestials.
Behind the scenes
Ciratu was originally meant to be mentioned in the 2012 reference book The Essential Guide to Warfare by Jason Fry and Paul R. Urquhart; however, the sidebar that would have mentioned the star was cut before the book's release. The information regarding Ciratu was later released in 2013 as part of Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Warfare Author's Cut, a series of articles published on the StarWars.com Blog by Jason Fry and Erich Schoeneweiss containing various cut content from The Essential Guide to Warfare. The Essential Atlas Online Companion placed the star in grid square N-14.
