Lorahm: The Water-moon of Lerodas

==Lorahm is one of the twin moons of Lerodas which is the smaller of the two with a surface area of only 265,510,000 km2 with over 90% of that being water. There are several small islands throughout Lorahm although they are extremely small, despite this there are two large islands in the North. 

Lorahm completes one orbit around Lerodas every 13 days. Its orbit is elliptical and lies 495,800 km away in the northern hemisphere and 320,300 km away in the south. Due to this Lorahm appears much larger in the south than in the North and its effects on tides are much greater.==


Lorahm is also the only one of the twin moons with natural life on it that was not terraformed. Aquatic animals from the size of goldfish to massive monstrous serpentine creatures are common place in the waters of Lorahm which are incredibly deep. The surface temperatures of the moon range from -79.4°C to 48.8°C. Edit


Solar eclipses with Lorahm occur at least once a year causing the Lorahm effect in which the light that reaches Lerodas appears a dark red although when it occurs in the southern hemisphere it appears a much darker, almost crimson, red and the light falls over the landscape and makes everything appear varying shades of red. The reason for this has baffled scientists for ages.Edit

Mineral Makeup:Edit

Lorahm’s mineral makeup is relatively unknown but the main islands are rich with quartz crystal, silver, clay, sandstone, and many igneous rocks from a volcano which once existed in the center of the island.
