Overview[]

Irrus is a gas giant, and the fourth planet in the Daeron System. It's atmosphere is made up of 85% Hydrogen and Helium with 15% heavier elements making up some of its mass.Irrus is perpetually covered with clouds composed of ammonia crystals and ammonium hydrosulfide. The clouds are located in the tropopause and are arranged into bands of different latitudes.

The interactions of these conflicting patterns cause storms and turbulence
