Anarrima was one of the constellations of stars set in the heavens of Arda by Varda.

History Edit

Anarrima was created by Varda from the ancient stars in preparation for the Awakening of the Elves and as with Wilwarin, Soronúmë, and Menelmacar, she set them in the heavens as signs to come.[1][2]

Etymology Edit

In Quenya, Anarrima means "Sun-border", from anar ("sun") and rima ("edge, border").[3]
