Return of the Noldor

   The return of Fëanor and his followers out of the West.
   The return of the princes of the Noldor to Middle-earth at the beginning of the First Age, under the leadership of Fëanor.
   The Return of the Noldor to Middle-earth was the result of the Flight of the Noldor from Aman. In fact, the entire journey out of Aman to the coasts of Middle-earth seems to have taken about nineteen years to complete, with the Return being achieved as the Moon rose for the first time. The first Sunrise occurred soon after, marking the beginning of the First Age.
