what are all those red star-looking things?

Lights on buildings so planes can see them.

No, if you look above the buildings, some of the lights in the sky, among the stars are red. Those are probably meant to be planets. Like when you can see Mars.

theyre not planets; theyre not along any sort of ecliptic!

A fair number of the star-objects are different colors/shades. I’d assume it is common everywhere, but where I grew up there was enough atmospheric disturbance/rippling (and there was no light-scatter) that not only did some stars appear different colors but some of the brighter ones would ripple/flicker through different colors.

I love the city lights on the moons. Maybe someday we will have them on our moon. To be able to look up and see that a few million people are making a home there…

Very beautiful. I wonder if those moons rotate relative to the sun, giving them night and day? Do they rotate relative to Iothera, presenting different faces to the planet?

Are the dots really connected in the sky from there? I think that would be hysterical! Then there’s be no cultural imagination factor in the constellations… well, maybe a little, especially for the ones that don’t really look like anything…
