I just watched a science video and it said, due to the black hole in the center of a galaxy, stars are group pretty densely near the core, which cause the bright center in the galaxy. Coruscant is located pretty close (in galaxy term) to the core, that means that stars are probably very close together there, then how do coruscant actually get nighttime? Shouldn't it stay bright all the time? (I mean without the city lights, of course)Anakin Skyobiliviator 00:56, July 19, 2011 (UTC)
Simply put, Coruscant isn't that close. – Karohalva 06:54, July 19, 2011 (UTC)
Also of note. On Pluto, the Sun (in the Plutonic daytime) is little more than a bright star. For Coruscant to lack a nighttime, there would have to be a star or multiple stars within such a short distance so as to mess up the orbits of the system. Coruscant is over 10,000 ly from the Deep Core. Systems closer are uninhabitable probably because of the closeness of the stars. There could be several stars within half a light year from Coruscant, but they would still be unrecognizable as anything other than slightly bright stars in the night sky. —Unsigned comment by184.108.40.206 (talk • contribs).
Furthermore, 10,000 light years is more than enough space to have multiple dark nebulae obscuring the galactic core. That said, the existence of habitable planets that close to the maelstrom at the heart of a galaxy is one of the fantastic caveats that make the Star Wars setting different from reality. jSarek 07:45, July 20, 2011 (UTC)
