Timeline of Arda

The First Dawn of the Sun, by Ted Nasmith

The Years of the Sun were the last of the great time periods in Arda, coming after the Years of the Trees. They started with the first rising of the Sun in the First Age, and continue until the present. This period of time was comprised of four Ages separated by significant events.

Description

The unit of time of the Years of the Sun was the coranar ("sun-round"; pl. coranári) in Quenya, also referred to as a loa ("growth"; pl. löar).[1] Though coranar and loa both refered to a single year, the two words had subtly different meanings. A coranar is an astronomical measurement that indicated the time for the Ambar (Earth) to complete a circuit around the Anar (Sun). A loa, by contrast, measured the time from one season of growth to the same season a year later.[2]

History

Main article: Timeline of Arda

These Years began with the first sunrise, some time after the destruction of the Two Trees, in conjunction with the return of the Ñoldor to Middle-earth. The count of time was newly measured according to the Sun's travels through the heavens and its change of direction and rotation. This continued throughout the rest of the ages of the Children of Ilúvatar, including the First Age (its last portion), the Second, the Third, the Fourth, and so on.[3]
