  • Which are the "seven wanderers"? If the planets follow the real planets, there are 5 easily naked-eye visible planets: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn. In the real world, in the old Ptolemaic astronomy, it seems that the sun and the moon were called planets and made 7, and the Earth was not a planet. But if the Westerosi maesters had Myrish tubes (= telescopes), did they believe in a heliocentric system and know already of Uranus and Neptune? Or did they know only of Uranus (makes 6) and say that the Stranger's planet was dark and invisible? Anthony Appleyard (talk) 16:28, 23 May 2021 (UTC)
