The fourth month of the year

Months of the year

According to the usage of the Dúnedain, the fourth month of the year, equivalent to Quenya Viressë. The meaning is obscure: the name arguably contains a root-word for 'web', though it is unclear how that idea relates to the nature of the month. The Shire-hobbits called the same month 'Astron'.
