A thin atmospheric moon orbiting an Earth-like Moon, close to a dim red dwarf star, around a black hole.


A black hole, orbited by a brown dwarf star, orbited by a blue Earth-like moon, orbited by a thin atmospheric nested moon. As of 3308. May, this system is the only known example of such a configuration: thirty other atmospheric nested moons are known, but their atmospheres are all too thick for them to be landable.

The nested moon 1 c a has a Sulphur Dioxide atmosphere and major Silicate Vapour geysers, and while there is life to be found here, the surface gravity (at 0.31 g) is too high for anything other than Bacteria and Strata to be present.

In such orbital configurations, the parents tend to be much closer to their moon(s) than usual, so down from the surface, they appear large on the sky:

Normally, explorers would see such Earth-like planets as blue and green, but as this system is bathed only in the dim red light of an L dwarf star, the green lands appear as a shade of brown instead. Even the day sides of the bodies are not much brighter than their night sides.

There are also a number of other moons farther away from the dead star that have thin atmospheres of various kinds as well, but their surfaces are so cold and dark that only Bacteria survive on them.
