The Oracle is a comet in an area of the ‘Verse called the Prairie. It’s slow eliptical orbit around Bai Hu makes a complete cycle once every 216.3 years. Despite it’s name, Oracle is nothing special in comparison to other comets in the System. However, the Oracle’s wake trail produces a noteworthy effect: ships hiding within a two mile stretch of the tail are nearly invisible to active scanners. This effect is occasionally used by ships in order to hide from pursuers.
