Red Planet

Red Planet - STAGE ONE

Air_Wing Recon

The following coordinates of the Red Planet - 2278.5 Carom - Jump point: 54-781-9

This planet is seen off the bow of the Battlestar Genesis after finding the Abandoned ships the Pegasus left behind, once they stripped what they could use and shot 9 people. The ships sit around a moon.

The planet is a reddish color from the atmosphere or the surface, which hasn't been determined as yet.

13 rings are opaque and only a few kilometers wide. The ring system contains little dust overall; it consists mostly of large bodies 0.2–20 m in diameter. A pair of shepherd moons rotate along the brightest ring.

In order of increasing distance from the planet. They can be divided into three groups: nine narrow main rings, two dusty rings and two outer rings.

The rings are slightly red in the ultraviolet and visible parts of the spectrum and grey in near-infrared. The rings are made of an extremely dark material. (Tyllium). Two are composed of very bright material. (Ice)

Closeup view of the rings, with enhanced color would range across the spectrum from yellow, blue, pink, orange, green, and various shades of each.

Red Planet - STAGE TWO

Marine Recon

The Planet has Oxygen levels, but the air is very thin. (Think like you would be high in the mountains, even on the surface). Alot of physical activity would be impossible, without getting 'winded'. Those unable to sustain such an atmosphere for any length of time, would be restricted from going down to the planet. IE - anyone with lung or heart problems. Women who are pregnant. Young children and babies.

80 percent of the planet is covered in water. Which gives the Red Algae the ability to thrive. The other ten percent are very dense jungle/foliage. The redness of the planet, with splotches of water (which looks purple) are caused by the color of the sky and the land masses. The landmasses hold minerals that create the reddish color. (Red Clay). Various whiter areas are limestone. Areas that are near the water, grow an abundance of Red Algae.

See the Wiki about Red Algae - Agar (agar agar) can be used as a laxative, a vegetarian gelatin substitute, a thickener for soups, in jellies, ice cream and Japanese desserts such as anmitsu, as a clarifying agent in brewing, and for paper sizing fabrics.

The Temple and Court

The stones stop here and give way to an enclosed length of grass. Each side has stepped ramps that lead to ceremonial platforms or small temples, the area itself is in a capital 'I' shape. The 'I' shape 'hallway' leads toward a broken wall and the stepped ramps look to be some seating for those attending.

At the end of the grassy area, a round stone has been placed and a small circular inner area has been carved inside it. It sits against a wall that is crumbling and has mostly fallen over to be covered by more vegetation. As part of the stone wall rises upward, there has been something carved within. But time has seem to worn it down to barely discernible etchings. To the left of the area, there looks to be an open area that has been covered by more vegetation.

Underground

Inner Chamber

This circular room hasn't been disturbed in a very long time. Although, dust does cover the floor to about an inch. The center has a large, black stone in shot with silver. Looking upward into the night sky, celestial objects shine brightly. The stone itself could be a large chunk of meteroite. There has been some words carved into the side. A native language to all:

Knowing the cyclical influences that create the present,
By knowing these influences of the present one can see the cyclical influences of the future.

Impart these words as they are the soul of our existance:

"What has happened before, will happen again…"

Inner Room

Once through the stone hallway, this room opens up into another 'observatory'. In the stones on the floor, some etchings have been done upon the stones. — Along with the following on the wall:

The Ram, the Bull, the Heavenly Twins,
And next the Crab, the Lion shines,
The Virgin and the Scales.
The Scorpion, Archer, and the Goat,
The Man who holds the Watering Pot,
And Fish with glittering scales.
