Pern is a fictional planet in the universe created by science fiction writer Anne McCaffrey for her Dragonriders of Pern series of novels. In certain areas of Ireland, the author's adopted home, the word pern means "spindle" or "bobbin"[citation needed], a reference to the motif of Thread in the Pern novels. McCaffrey places the planet Pern in orbit around the star Rukbat.
