Nur-menel, The "Dome of Varda", or the Lesser Firmament, the dome of stars that Varda made above Aman to keep away Melkor’s spies and spirits. It was a simulacrum of the true firmament (Tarmenel), the patterns therein were repeated but the apparent stars appeared relatively larger in size to the total visible area, so Nur-menel appeared very bright.
