In "[[The Coming of the Elves and the Making of Kôr]]", [[Manwë]] suddenly became aware that the [[Elves]] had awoken.  Their arrival prompted [[Varda]] to create new stars to double the glory of the sky.  At the end of this task Varda was returning in great haste to [[Valinor]] and she dropped Morwinyon in the west where it blazes above the world's edge.<ref>{{LT1|V}}</ref>
