So far I've found terra moons to be quite rare. Ones with life even moreso. This is the first time I've found one orbiting an ice giant.

I've also never seen an eclipse do this:

Edited since I can now actually add links.

Apologies for the double post: I accidentally hit submit before posting the second link, and it won't let me edit.

Is this the video you meant to post? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAzUBBlcM0g

Looks weird... you have a moon going one way over the planet, and then the same one going the other way? retrograde motion maybe (if it's another moon around a GG)?

Yes, that is the video. There was no retrograde motion involved; just happened to get an eclipse at the right moment that the relative motion of the moons changed. The moon casting the shadow is closer to the planet. What's really great that I didn't catch in the video is that this was just after the moon was eclipsed by the planet and just before yet another moon cast a partial eclipse near the south pole.

I found a real doozy of a system here - a warm Terra world orbiting a planemo!

Image

It's somewhat toasty at 56°C, but this is a Terra (with oceans!) that is being warmed by an incandescent moon (ironically, the dark body on the left, but it has a temperature over 1100°C presumably as a result of extreme tidal forces). The primary is a 9 jupiter mass superjovian accompanied by nine large moons including a small ice giant (visible here between the incandescent moon and the primary). The terra isn't particularly habitable though, with a 6.5 bar atmosphere predominantly comprised of CO2. Still, I didn't think this would be possible in SE!

This red dwarf's mass seems quite low: lower than that of its companion, a T-class brown dwarf.

[quote="Gnargenox"]I guess life on all the other planets is not intelligent enough to have fire or electricity, yet. Perhaps in a future version of SE they will have evolved enough to create their own night-side lights. lol[/quote]

I once found a star that it's binary system is a planet. I don't kknow if it's real, but, it was very weird. But sadly I had no image because I had no psace :(.

RS 8474-2694-5-142-110
It is a binary star system with two duel planet systems.

How do you put images in, not the links?

I'm pretty sure we can't see your spaceengine folder :) I'm afraid you'll have to use an external image sharing website for few posts more, then you'll be able to add files in your messages.
