Aloria (First Planet in the Axion System)

Aloria is a white, chalky planet pitted with craters, similar to the Moon or Mercury. Here are its basic planetary statistics:

Diameter: 5,122 km
Circumference: 16,091 km
Mass: 3.036 x 10^23 kg

Important surface features:
There are 6 large craters on Aloria, easily visible when the planet is first seen:
-Ganden (637 km diameter)
-Herbie (609 km diameter)
-Drenill (543 km diameter)
-Fabone (487 km diameter)
-Wishwill (433 km diameter)
-Crenel (322 km diameter)

The tallest peak on Aloria is Gantis Mons, at 14,275 feet above mean elevation.

There have not been any missions as of yet to Aloria, but several are in the works, including orbiters, landers, rovers, and manned missions.

The temperature on Aloria can range from -320 degrees Fahrenheit in the shadowy polar craters to almost 600 degrees Fahrenheit in the day regions on the equator.

Aloria has two moons:

Arken is a small, grey asteroid moon. It is 33 kilometers in diameter and is irregularly shaped. It has one large crater, Bilin, visible on its Aloria-facing hemisphere. It orbits at an average distance of 8,369 km from Aloria.

Zenden is another small, grey asteroid moon. It is 17 kilometers in diameter and is also irregularly shaped. It has no large visible surface features. It orbits at an average distance of 11,462 km from Aloria.
