// Station 1 // Lore
This lilting lullaby is a folk tale about the occasional bright starbursts in the sky towards the direction of the Hyades 🌌.
It is said that when the Pleiades were still gathering their youthful formation – Asterope and Sterope constituting the core at the time – two far-flung comets fell in love.
Their orbits, differing wildly in origin, began to exert a dynamic pull on each other, each with unique particle-cloud trails in tow. Over millions of years, a mutual encirclement gradually drew closer and closer ... until particles from their wake began to collide each time they met 🎇.
Their dance will continue through the next seventy epochs, alternating between vast interstellar separation and dangerously intimate proximity. Then, they will eventually merge and become one entity, perhaps then following a new orbit through the galaxy, or perhaps in a final collision. But they will be together at last.
// Station 2 // Field Notes
Reflecting our best understanding of the local concept of an "epoch", we have gathered that seventy epochs translates to a bit under four million Earth years.
