Summary:

Frigid landable icy moon with two rings and a thin water-rich atmosphere.

 
Description:

In ancient myth, Bifrost was the celestial bridge that connected the earthly world with the high Heavens of the Gods. It was a symbol for achievement and transition.

This blue-white moon (ABC 2 c) greets travellers with its thin, frigid atmosphere, crystal clear plateaus, and mountains. The most outstanding sights, however, are the two majestic rings that clearly stand apart from each other and reach high in the sky, invoking the ancient myth of the Bifrost bridge.

Bifrost is tidally locked, and since the star system is a quaternary system, there are always two stars high in the sky along with the majestic Milky Way. With a number of distant nebulae visible as well, this moon is a spectacular location to take a walk and wonder in awe.
