An inhabited moon with rings and a thin oxygen atmosphere, orbiting a ringed gas giant relatively closely.
Located in the LHS 200 system, Al’Ameira Dua (originally designated as LHS 200 1 a, later renamed by Universal Cartographics) is a rarity inside the bubble. It's an inhabited moon that has rings, a thin oxygen atmosphere, and its ringed parent is quite close by. The gas giant and its rings loom large in the blue sky, with a spectacular view of all its rings, which can often be seen behind Al’Ameira Dua's own rings.
The moon has several smaller settlements, but the most popular destination is Fuca Point, a planetary port with some agricultural domes next to the main tower.
Green colours feature prominently around the port. First and foremost are the glass biodomes, which offer stunning views of the sky and its sights:
More easily accessible is the bar on the port's concourse. The window looks out at the domes and the tower, and there are still some plants nearby, so all the green inside goes nicely with the purple ground and blue skies outside:
Adventurous Commanders might also disembark and head up the main tower of the settlement, which will give them a vantage point over 500 meters above. Note that with a 0.34 g surface gravity, the ascent is difficult and dangerous, even in an Artemis suit and engineered thrusters. Unfortunately, the very top of the tower remains just above reach, but one can climb slightly below it and still enjoy some great views:
A much safer, but still novel, way of taking in the views is to climb one of the glass domes. Curiously enough, neither the local authorities nor the Pilot's Federation seems to mind Commanders climbing any of the structures.
