    I will have a go at it..

    At the time of the War of the Ring, it had been a long time since Treebeard had seen his beloved, Fimbrethil. A LONG time....

    (Hope this is not too difficult...)

    Thank you.

    This former capital could be said to be a "stellar city".

    Great answer, and one I admit I hadn't considered. My answer though is a literal city of Middle-earth.

    What is Armenelos?

    This was the capital of Numenor and became it's largest city. It's "former" because it went "under the wave".
    The name is a Quenya word that translates as Royal Fortress of the Heavens. (Maybe not exactly "stellar", but close).

    Nice try Boraxxe, but Kittykatt was right on the money, Osgiliath it is.

    The literal Sindarin translation is "Citadel of the Stars".

    Gratz Kittykatt, the jacket of many colors is yours once again

    What is Mirrormere or Kheled-zaram?

    This lake did not show a viewer's reflection, but it did reflect stars in the night sky, even during daytime.
