Zurapha

 

Zurapha is a distant planetary system that lies in the Camelopardalis Constellation, it's located on the outer edges of the Polaris Region.  Zurapha is a binary system consisting of a yellow G-class star and an orange K-class star, the stars are separated by an average distance of 260 AU.  Zurapha's planets orbit the brighter G-class star.

 
The Zurapha System was settled by Polarian Prime as a mining colony.  The system's two inner terrestrial worlds are both rich in valuable metals.  Numerous large mines were setup across the surface, the metals were exported back to Polarian Prime.

 

The two planets are sometimes called "brother" planets, being that are of similar composition and temperature.  They are also very different though, Zurapha C is much smaller with a lower mass than Zurapha B.  Zurapha C houses the larger population, it is the system's government and economical center.
