Okay, consensus seems to be... Tzadkeil as eclipse-maker.
 Makes plenty sense to me, and I appreciate the more astronomy-savvy
amongst us filling me in on the whole
So, just to plumb the depths of my ingnorance a little further...
Why is Tzadkiel's ship causing eclipses? We know that it doesn't
usually come any further in-system than the ring of Dis. Is it to make
a dramatic statement of the fact that Severian is still under
Tzadkiel's protective wing (so to speak)? To illustrate the fact that
it, and all it's theological implications, is still a presence in
this far-remote past? Or does it refer to some specific or
implied plot point I'm missing out on?
