Planets of Chihazh

Jump to: navigation, search

Chihazh is commonly considered by Galhafan astronomers to have 11 known major planets in 10 orbits[1], although we would probably classify Havatrakh as a brown dwarf rather than as a planet. Names are given in both modern Ivetsian with their derivation from Classical Sanle and in Classical Blafu, the language of scholarship. Planetary names are descriptive. In Ivetsian, they end with a suffix derived from the Classical Sanle tkab meaning "star", but now used to simply mean "planet". In modern Ivetsian, this morpheme is usually -takh, but can sometimes be -dakh or -ska. Excluding Galhaf itself, there were five planets known to ancient observers.
