A constellation created by Varda

One of the many bright constellations placed in the sky by Varda the Kindler in the time before the first Elves awoke. It has not been certainly identified, but its name apparently means 'Sun-edge' or 'Sun-border', so it perhaps lies to the side of the Ecliptic, the Sun's path through the sky.
