The Planet Umuto

Umuto is an Earth-like planet mostly covered in water. Such land as there is mostly consists of two groups, an archipelago stretching from one polar region to the other in a mostly NNE-SSW direction, called the SSildifian Archipelago, and a large island named Naadad, along with a few close-by neighboring islands.

Umuto has three moons. The near one's apparent size is about two thirds of Luna's as seen from Earth, the middle moon's is about one third, and the far moon is a bright point.

Here are some astronomical data about Umuto. All figures relative to Sol/Earth/Luna unless specified otherwise.
