Alcarinquë (Q: The Glorious); In the distant past, at the time of the awakening of the Elves, Varda added many brilliant stars to to the heavens using the shimmering dews of Telperion the Silver Tree. Among these were the familiar star-patterns we still know today, and other lights that were not truly stars. Among these was Alcarinquë - the planet we know as Jupiter. Its Elvish name translates as 'The Glorious', because it would have been the brightest object in the skies at that time (the Sun, the Moon, and Venus - the Silmaril of Eärendil - were all far in the future at this ancient time).
