Artist's Description

*In the histories of ancient lighthouses a number stand out more than others, such is the light “Qualar’s Sun” on the northern coast of Santo.

Built in the 2nd century by cosmo-technician Jolas Qualar, it was a marvel of the age.
Qualar used solar energy from the second sun he created in the night sky to power the disc that seemed to float above the bronze tower.

The light itself could be seen from the moon and even ships entering the system knew instantly where the planet Nippseen spun in relation to the other planets and satellites in the system.
Of course there always seem to be a flaws in great works, the flaw in this one came about when Qualar died in a lab. explosion, taking with him the secret of his sun which even then was dimming.

The light from the disc continued to glow for about 200 years, and then gradually diminished until finally going dark and no amount of technology as being able to make it work since, although many have tried.
And so here it sits on above the Endless Sea, now its just an oddity, and the sun he created just hangs in space, slowly dying.
