This is the stellar component of the Keser –Tefireth binary system. An F1 IV white subgiant, Keser has a luminosity and mass six times that of Sol. The Keser system was continually re-supplied with gas and dust during its accretion phase due to its position within its incubator cloud and the proximity to Ain. The neutron star’s periodic flares and accompanying shock wave had compressed additional materials into the protostar Keser’s accretion disc. The white subgiant is the center to a double planetary system which is relatively unique in the Known Universe.
The Keser system, in addition to the brown dwarf Tefireth, includes four rock or metallic core planets and four gas giant or supergiant planets. The orbits of Tefireth and all but one of the other planets are customary and predicted for a stellar system that develops from a super massive accretion disk. However, the outermost planet, Malkuth, is in a retrograde orbit that is not only eccentric but also angled 23° from the planetary plane. Asterologists theorize that Malkuth had been ejected from its home system due to orbital instability and wandered into the gravitational well of the Otz system where it found the stabile orbital node that it now occupies
Pronunciation & Astronomical Name
(Kes´er) aka Otz Chiim 4
Positioned in a nearly circular orbit around the ternary group Keser revolves around the common gravitational center every 465 standard years at a mean distance of c. 154.6 AU (14.4 billion mi). Keser has a luminosity that is six times greater than that of Sol.
Keser’s chromosphere as a mean temperature of 7,275°A and has a diameter of c. 6.2 million km. It completes a rotation on its axis every 159 standard days. The stellar prominence cycle creates increased surface activity and broadband radiation spikes every 22 standard years. As a class F1 III star, Keser’s energy output is very different from the spectral output of Homo sapiens home world’s star Sol. Although the apparent size of Keser as seen from Equinox is identical to Sol’s apparent size as viewed from Earth (32+ arc-minutes), the color temperature of its full spectrum is blue shifted in comparison to sunlight. Equinox and the other potentially habitable planets of the Keser-Tefireth are made so by the spectral augmentation provided by Tefireth in the infra-red and far infra-red. The diagram below describes the flux output of the Keser-Tefireth in comparison to Sol.
In addition to the brown dwarf Tefireth the Keser system contains eight planets equally distributed on either side of Tefireth’s orbit. The Mitzvah exploratory team found the correspondence between the stellar and planetary bodies in the new found system so close to the mystical Jewish Qabalah that they selected names for the stars and planets of the system to match that ancient metaphysical system. The planets were named in order outward from Keser; Chokmah, Binah, Chesed, Geburah, Hod, Netzach, Yesod and Malkuth.
The inner four planets have either rocky or metallic cores as evidenced by their respective magnetic fields. Three of the four have sufficient mass to have sustained atmospheres and with their metallic cores had sufficient internal heat to support liquid water at the point that water formed from atmospheric and volcanic interaction. However, the intense solar wind radiating from Keser eroded the nascent atmospheres early in their lives leaving their surfaces open to cratering from asteroid and interplanetary dust bombardment.
The outer planets are typical gas planets found in many solar systems. Researchers postulate that only the inner three giants – Hod, Netzach, and Yesod – are native to the Keser system. Their principal argument is that the inner three have rocky cores. However, three facts about Malkuth, the outermost planet, argue for its capture by the Keser system.
- First, the planet’s mass is approximately ten times the mass of Jupiter which qualifies it as a gas supergiant – just slightly lighter than the minimum to qualify it as a brown dwarf.
- Second, the supergiant has a metallic helium core.
- Third, Malkuth is in a retrograde orbit that is not only eccentric but also angled 23° from the planetary plane.
Asterologists theorize that Malkuth had been ejected from its home system due to orbital instability and wandered into the gravitational well of the Otz system where it found the stable orbital node around Keser that it now occupies
