Great Conjunction

The ecliptics are constellations of stars through which all the celestial bodies revolve. There are 12 of these constellations, each taking up 30 degrees of the night sky.
The Orb of Sheliak makes a full revolution every 360 days, or one year.
The Moon of Loran makes a full revolution every 30 days.
The Moon of Woryk makes a full revolution every 10 years, and its oblong orbit brings it closer and closer to the world, until on the 8th passing it actually skims the world's atmosphere. The end of the 8th passing it begins retreating again. This is called a Cycle, and lasts 80 years.
There are five Celestial Spheres that make their revolutions on varying scales. Some as soon as every couple years, and others as long as every 8 years.
Every 9 Cycles of the Moon of Woryk, the Orb of Sheliak, the Moons, and the celestial spheres conjoin at the first ecliptic. This is called a Conjunction. A conjunction occurs every 720 years, on the first day of the year, which would be the first day of a new 720 year period, called a Great Cycle. Each Great Cycle begins with a conjunction.
Towards the end of the 5th Great Cycle, the Star of Eraston appears in the sky (About 17 years before it ends). This comet moves quickly from the Eye of Aminus, moving southwards towards an alignment with the other celestial spheres at the first ecliptic on the same day as the 6th Conjunction (the 1st day of the year). By this time it is a blazing star with along bright tail. This event is called a Great Conjunction. A Great Conjunction occurs at the end of every 3600 years (5 Great Cycles), on the first day of the year, which would be the first day of a new 3600 year period, called an Era. Each Era begins with a Great Conjunction.
