Alorea has a single sun about which it revolves. Two moons revolve around it.

Breaker is the larger of the two moons. It is a uniform blue in color and has a noticeably elliptical orbit which happens to be in step with Alorea’s orbit around the sun, such that its closest approach is always when it is full. It’s period is 50 days, exactly 1/8th of an Alorean year.

The Eye is the smaller of the two moons. It is mostly red with a large roughly circular dark spot. The Eye’s orbit is very elliptical and somewhat erratic, with an orbital “period” of anywhere from 15-21 days. The Eye’s orbital path crosses Breaker’s; what prevents them from colliding is unknown, but it has (obviously) never happened.
