Moonrise On Ry-oden
Ry-oden is a large planet in a binary star system. Both stars are nearing the end of their lives. But organic life has just begun on Ry-oden. Its relatively late start is due to the easing of its harsh environment. Being in such a close orbit around its stars has meant that life had found it very hard to get a foothold here. But now that it is becoming more temperate many life forms are thriving.
The termite like mounds that you see here were formed by a species that were once subterranean. A few sub-species are now in the early stages of evolving wings.
There’s nothing like making up for lost time, even out there.
