The Raspar system was a star system situated in the Tragan Cluster. It was located within the Outer Rim Territories of the galaxy.


Tragan Cluster

The Tragan Cluster, home to the Raspar system

The Raspar system was one of at least nine star systems nested within the Tragan Cluster, a sector based in the Outer Rim portion of the galaxy.[1]

The system contained at least two celestial bodies: the moon Raspar-6 and a nearby agricultural planet, inhabited by an intelligent species and other types of wildlife.[2] This planet was known to be hit by stellar flares on occasion.[3]


At one point, Raspar-6 was the site of a large-scale nuclear blast that was expected to considerably perturb the atmosphere of the neighboring planet.[3] Weather predictions for the month of Stolivea on the aforementioned planet anticipated atmospheric disturbances such as the spreading of a phenomenon known as talking fogs into hollows and low valleys as well as generating irrational echoes, heavy rain, and eruptions of snow in lower elevations. During this period, which could have reportedly lasted until mid-Aint or early Nnters, forecasts advised composting, and for the dust farmers on the planet affected, taking up hydroponics in fribulation tanks.[3]

Orbital bodiesEdit


Raspar-6 was, as known by some forecasters, a delinquent moon noted for potentially changing or influencing the weather of its nearby planet. It was once hit by a massive atomic blast.[3]

Agricultural planetEdit

The planet was a terrestrial, agricultural world containing intelligent life. One of its planetary regions, The West Fissure, possessed dust farmers who commonly relied on weather forecasts for work and observed the crop boundaries set by The Relevant Farm Act of Thairwsthis 12. It was also home to a species known as mind eels, which thrived under the occasional solar flare that etched the planet's surface.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Raspar system was first mentioned in The Essential Atlas, a third-generation Essential Guide written by Jason Fry and Daniel Wallace, and published in August 2009.[4] The book placed the system in the Outer Rim Territories, within the Tragan Cluster.[5] The Raspar system was later added to Star Wars: The Essential Atlas Online Companion, a web-exclusive series of articles intended to serve as dynamic supplement for The Essential Atlas.[4]

Fry has stated that "planets not assigned a system in [a] published source can be assumed to reside in [the] system of [the] same name."[6] This article assumes the same applies for Raspar-6, a moon first introduced in a one-page weather forecast written by Bob Carrau for the 1993 book Monsters and Aliens from George Lucas, a publication that combines creature designs and photographs from various projects of George Lucas, creator of the Star Wars franchise, with original text by Carrau.[3] Lucasfilm employee Leland Chee, who maintains the Holocron continuity database, has indicated that information contained in the book is non-canonical.[7]
