Sinking Satellite by priteeboy Sinking Satellite by priteeboy
The nearest and smallest Moon of a large Earth-like world has been inching ever closer each year, disaster is inevitable. Probably struck by a comet and knocked out of orbit, or maybe interfered with by two larger Moons nearby are likely reasons for such an even to happen...

On approach, anyone or anything viewing from the ground notices a growing disk blocking out the Sunlight, darkening skies, and magnetically-influenced aurora's and lightning appearing in the most unlikely areas, their flash of colour illuminating just what exactly is about to come crashing down. The ground shakes due to gravitational stress acted upon it, and storm cells in the atmosphere go haywire as they move above turbulent seas, their world will end before the main event even happens...the impact!

Well heres my successful entry to :iconterraspace:'s first artpack they have made ever since I was finally good enough to stand a chance lol.

Can you beleive that the "base" render for the storm clouds in the blue planet about to be hit was done in Vue? yep...clever use of terrains right there, thats all I will say ;) ...who needs Terragen 2 for dramatic orbital renders?

Wallpapers of this and some other cool space-themed art can be found at TerraSpace's Moons pack...I won't be putting WP's here, but print is available.

Amazing yet... tragic. The disaster in this is anything but avoidable. And again with the amazing masterpieces from you? You certainly, definitely have talent, and no less than that.

It's one of those horrible things that you know you just can't get out of. It gives a sinking feeling, which is quite fitting to the piece really ;p

Oh definitly! No doubt about that. If I knew and/or thought my planet would be horrifically destroyed by some sort of incoming celestial body, i'd feel helpless too. :'(

It would have to hit quickly. I don't think it would take very many orbits for it to be torn apart by the difference in the planet's gravity at different points along the satellite.

That's a good point :nod: Maybe it got knocked inwards by a comet on the other side or something :D
