A body or space contained under a single surface, which in every part is equally distant from a point within called its center.
Hence, any globe or globular body, especially a celestial one, as the sun, a planet, or the earth.
The apparent surface of the heavens, which is assumed to be spherical and everywhere equally distant, in which the heavenly bodies appear to have their places, and on which the various astronomical circles, as of right ascension and declination, the equator, ecliptic, etc., are conceived to be drawn; an ideal geometrical sphere, with the astronomical and geographical circles in their proper positions on it.
In ancient astronomy, one of the concentric and eccentric revolving spherical transparent shells in which the stars, sun, planets, and moon were supposed to be set, and by which they were carried, in such a manner as to produce their apparent motions.
An orbit, as of a star; a socket.
a globular body: ball planet, star.

Sphere is a cross platform, open source computer program designed primarily to make Role-playing games (RPGs) similar to those found on the SNES and Sega Genesis consoles. Sphere was originally coded by Chad Austin. When making a game with Sphere, most things are scripted using the Java Script (often abbreviated as JS) language (though very early versions used its own Spherescript language) with special functions and objects for maps, spritesets, images and other resources.
