"Neevlit and Dha should be about normal, but don't panic, incandescent solar flares will etch most of the planet's surface."
―Weather forecast for the planet's West Fissure[src]

A planet orbited a sun whose solar flares regularly affected most of the world's surface. The planet's climate was varied and included such weather phenomena as dry rain, glacial cysts, irrational echoes, spotted snow, resistance shadows, and talking fogs. The West Fissure was a large region on the planet, featuring arzen fields, low valleys, and hollows. The fauna of the planet included the mind eel, and the world's population included dust farmers and grain distributors.

At some point, an atomic blast occurred on the moon Raspar-6, which was expected to affect the planet's atmosphere and climate. The explosion was noted in a weather forecast that prognosticated the climate for the West Fissure for an entire local year.

Description[]

"This is the time to watch for mind eels and their offspring. The solar flares excite them, and they do not heed the crop boundaries set forth in The Relevant Farm Act of Thairwsthis 12."
―Weather forecast for the planet's West Fissure[src]

A terrestrial planet with chalk on its surface orbited a sun. Incandescent solar flares periodically etched most of the world's surface. A weather forecast once predicted that the southern areas of the planet's region known as the West Fissure would experience nostalgic earthquakes.[1]

The climate at the West Fissure varied throughout the months of the planet's year, interchangeably warming up and cooling down. The West Fissure also regularly experienced winters. The planet's weather phenomena included clouds of Mooxx fat, dry rain, glacial cysts, irrational echoes, spotted snow, resistance shadows, and talking fogs, as well as rising precipitation that gave way to erupting snow at lower elevation levels. In addition, the surface of the world was affected by magnetic radiation and ionic phase shifts, the latter of which could vary on a daily basis. The mind eel was a species native to the planet, and the creatures and their offspring became excited by the solar flares affecting their homeworld.[1]

History[]

"The atomic blast on the delinquent moon Raspar-6 should affect the atmosphere around mid-Stolivea, distributing talking fogs into low valleys and hollows."
―Weather forecast for the planet's West Fissure[src]

At some point, The Relevant Farm Act of Thairwsthis 12 established crop boundaries on the planet, although the native mind eels ignored them and thus posed a potential threat to the local farmers. Later, an atomic blast occurred on the moon Raspar-6, which a subsequent weather forecast for the planet's West Fissure region predicted to potentially have a months-long effect on the planet's atmospheric and surface conditions. The weather forecast informed farmers of the anticipated weather conditions throughout the local year, noting the effect of the Raspar-6 explosion on the planet.[1]

Inhabitants[]

"Dust farmers are advised to use hydroponics in their fribulation tanks during this period, which could last until mid-Aint or early Nnters."
―Weather forecast for the planet's West Fissure[src]

Dust farmers inhabited the planet, sometimes utilizing hydroponics in fribulation tanks. The residents of the world planted root-bound seedlings and irrigated arzen fields. The population also included grain distributors. A specific calendar was used on the planet, consisting of nine months: Ensi, Stolivea, Aint, Nnters, Hinggnih, Neevlit, Dha, Bababbb, and Aaaaaalt. Several commemorative events known as the Days of Rejection were observed on the planet, with the first Day of Rejection taking place at some point following the start of Ensi.[1]

Locations[]

"Nnters through Hinggnih is anticipated to be slightly warmer and high-pitched in the north, with the southern climes wavering under nostalgic earthquakes."
―Weather forecast for the planet's West Fissure[src]

The West Fissure, also known as Region 29, was an area on the planet. It featured arzen fields as well as low valleys and hollows, and it was large enough for the climate to differ between the region's northern and southern areas.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The planet was mentioned in 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 Bob Carrau.[1] Lucasfilm employee Leland Chee, who maintains the Holocron continuity database, has indicated that information contained in Monsters and Aliens from George Lucas is non-canonical[2] with respect to the Star Wars Legends continuity.[3]

However, the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas and its StarWars.com Online Companion built upon the mention of[4] the moon Raspar-6 in Monsters and Aliens from George Lucas, where it was featured as part of an in-universe weather forecast affecting the planet.[1] These sources introduced the Raspar system, which was situated in the Tragan Cluster,[4] a part of the New Territories portion of[5] the Outer Rim Territories.[4]
