The planet of Binaka is an Earth-like rocky planet, slightly smaller than the earth (6125 km mean radius). It has four major continents, occupying roughly 20% of the world's surface. The remainder of the surface is water and polar ice caps. It is still geologically active. Binaka orbits its star at an average distance of 143 million kilometers, with a year of about 354 Earth days. It rotates on its axis once every 24.5 earth hours, giving it a year of about 347 local days. It has one natural moon with similar influence on Binaka as Earth's moon has on Earth. It also has one artificial moon, created during the Second Age, that orbits in a polar orbit at a distance of about twice it's natural moon. It's large enough to be visible in the night sky as a small disc.
