The renowned Observatory Arcanis in the Irriseni capital of Whitethrone is located in the city's northwestern Twohill area, near the top of Observatory Hill. The observatory attracts star scholars of all stripes, including astronomers and astrologers.
The observatory is a round stone building with a domed roof of tarnished green brass, stationed at the end of a winding stone path. A slot cut into the roof provides an open view of the night sky for its tremendous telescope, an eight-segmented brass device with a primary lens several feet wide.
