My latest work-in-progress: a double crescent exomoon in a binary star system. Like a giant cat eye in the sky staring downGiven that the sun and moon figured so prominently in so many of Earth’s mythologies (and hence helped shape our basic cultural assumptions), I wonder how a twin star system would alter the mythic structure /basic assumptions for a culture living under 2 suns. Also, what would they think of a moon that periodically turned into a giant god eye watching them as the moon phased thru its cycle? I might worry if a huge astral predator watched me like that.Would 2 stars and a giant eye be comforting or make you paranoid? Fodder for speculative fiction, I guess….
