Osgilliath, the dome of the stars! I think it pretty much has to do with how I imagine it! I picture it as a mighty circular hall, in the same design as the King's hall of Minas Tirith, with Statues of the Great Kings of men standing vigil all around! In the middle stands a great pedestal where the Palantir resides, reflecting its surroundings in its dark surfaces.
Maybe the dome itself is made of some strange black stone, like Orthanc, which at Night reflects the stars or varda on its surface and maybe by some arts is visible on the inside...
I am not studying cosmology per se, but I am interested in it. I like reading about the stars, galaxies and the universe. When you think in term of the universe all of our doings here on earth seem so petty and unimportant!
Beautiful thread Elbereth.
Undomiel-- evenstar.It sounds like a whisper and a sigh. A star to gaze at and share your secrets with, a star to pray under for victory over the unnatural darkness of evil. Thorin, that was beautiful and yours also Brego it is an enchanting hauntingly beautiful word.
Great choices so far... Osgiliath and Ithilien especially in my opinion! yes! And I'll add Maedhros too...
... but there are so many! Asfaloth, Amroth, Nimrodel, Galadhon... and on and on. I could not pick one favorite for sure, and would probably not be able to pick a top twenty for example!
