Raspar-6 was an Outer Rim moon located in the Tragan Cluster. It was once the site of a large atomic blast that, according to forecasts, would be responsible for causing various types of atmospheric disturbances on certain regions of a nearby agricultural planet.
Raspar-6 was a natural satellite in the Raspar system, located in the Tragan Cluster within the Outer Rim Territories. It was situated near an agricultural planet, and the moon was known to, at least potentially, affect the weather of said world. Raspar-6 was described in some weather forecasts as a "delinquent moon."
Raspar-6 was once the site of a large-scale atomic blast, which was so significant that it was predicted to impact the atmosphere of the nearby planet during the month of Stolivea on that world's calendar.
The effects on The West Fissure, a region on the aforementioned world, were expected to be the spreading of a phenomenon known as talking fogs into hollows and low valleys as well as generating irrational echoes, heavy rain, and eruption of snow in lower elevations. Weather forecasts on the planet advised composting and recommended that dust farmers take up hydroponics in fribulation tanks during that period, which could reportedly last until mid-Aint or early Nnters.
Behind the scenesEdit
The natural satellite Raspar-6 was first mentioned in a one-page weather forecast titled "Region 29: The West Fissure," written by Bob Carrau for the 1993 book Monsters and Aliens from George Lucas, a publication that combines creature designs and photographs from various projects of George Lucas, creator of the Star Wars franchise, with original text by Carrau. Lucasfilm employee Leland Chee, who maintains the Holocron continuity database, has indicated that information contained in the book is non-canonical.
Sixteen years later, the Raspar system was created and included in The Essential Atlas, a third-generation Essential Guide written by Jason Fry and Daniel Wallace, and published in August 2009. The book placed the system in the Outer Rim Territories, within the Tragan Cluster at the grid coordinates N-5. Fry has stated that "planets not assigned a system in [a] published source can be assumed to reside in [the] system of [the] same name." This article assumes the same applies for moons.
