A telescopic station built into the houses of shipping families to scan for the return of loved ones. Named after the famed Widows Walks of pre-starflight Terra.

In practice of course, any Starport with sufficient infrastructure has a datanet, as well as beacons, communications as well as ship-to-ship, and ship-to-port gossip, advertisement, announcements, what have you. But Widowposts are often maintained there for tradition's sake.
