Alingon is a Location in Mass Effect 3. Alingon is located in the Faryar system within the Hourglass Nebula cluster. Locations can be explored while you traverse the galaxy. Locations may vary in size or scope, and may or may not have Missions associated to them. Some of them can only be scanned from atop the Normandy, while others can be landed on.
Alingon (which means "deceptive") was so named by salarian scouts because as their probes landed on the planet their instruments started going awry. This turned out to be due to the high concentration of magnetically active periclase (magnesia) in the core and crust of the planet. This interferes with scans and broadcasts, which has given rise to countless spacer stories of pirates lying in wait in Alingon's magnetosphere or crashed ships with untold fortunes stranded on the surface. In reality, any pirates would have a hard time locating prey amid all the interference and would live lives cut off from the rest of the galaxy because the magnetosphere kills extraplanetary communication.
Alingon's other natural features are a thin atmosphere of carbon dioxide, spectacular dry ice formations, and xenon gas, which can be skimmed from the upper atmosphere and used in ion thrusters.
