An icy moon with an inclined orbit, offering nice views of the huge ring of its gas giant parent.


Body 6 d is a ringed icy moon with a thin Nitrogen atmosphere, orbiting a Class I Gas Giant with an outer ring that's over 3 million kilometers wide. The moon's orbit is inclined by over 19 degrees, offering a nice view of the rings and of the three shepherd moons which are situated between the outer and the two inner rings.
Due to its relatively low density, the wide ring is very faint and can only be properly seen at night - an elusive guardian over forests of Fonticulua that grow all over the icy surface.
