Under the Stars by tazzyface Under the Stars by tazzyface
Wow, a photomanip that doesn't look like everything else (I hope)! Shame it looks the same as my other work... Anyway...

I was at Respawn LAN the weekend that has just passed, and decided to whip this up using some stock I had on my computer. I was listening to Under the Stairs by TBM, which so happens to be my favourite song, however I didn't have any pictures of stairs so I changed it to 'stars' ;)

This took about 2 hours, it's really nothing special, but I thought I'd share it anyway.

Absolutely beautiful. I love planet art. This is certainly visual celestial music. Note, you wouldn't want to live on the coasts on planets this close to each other. Daily tides would be well over 1000 feet per day!

Thank you :)
Likewise, I find space very beautiful. It would be quite interesting to watch tides that high - from a safe spot, of course!

I gave that number because I learned that when Earth's moon was new, it orbited very close to our planet. The tides were like a 1,000 feet tall because of it. It would have been grand to have seen that

I didn't know that... That would have been amazing to witness, though our Earth today has many beautiful things to see too :)

It is not easy to estimate how far away from the Earth the Moon was when it formed, but simulations suggest is was about 3-5 times the radius of the Earth, or about 19-30 thousand km. (The Moon is currently about 384,000 km away from Earth or 3-4 thousand times further away than this.) The Moon probably couldn't have formed closer than 3 Earth radii because tidal forces from the Earth would just pull it apart again, and it is unlikely that the impact could have ejected material further than 5 Earth radii. It's not a totally easy questions to answer though as it depends a lot on the (unknown) details of the impact and how the hot material behaved in space. [link]

I'm having a hard time finding the web site which tells us how high were the early ocean tides. That would take a lot more work.

I'm quite interested to find out, so I'll search and see if anything of relevance comes up.

I'm impressed. I'm sure you intuitively feel that a significantly closer moon would produce such an effect. Yet, this astounding image of daily thousand foot high tides is difficult to verify on the web!
