The Moon is the orbiting smaller body which rotates around the Earth.
"The Hive have installed a base deep within our Moon. We'll make sure they're not permanent residents." - Destiny
Information of The Moon being in Destiny was introduced in the article Destiny: Quick FAQ.
The Moon, as seen in the Destiny Moon trailer, is off-balance of what is normally viewed from Earth. Analyzing The Moon in the aforementioned trailer, it has undergone an approximate transformation of the top moving 25º away from camera and then moving 135º clockwise. The transformation reveals a section of The Moon's dark-side, where a structure at least 470 miles (756 kilometers) across is visible over the horizon in the Hommel sector.
In the second Bungie Podcast, it was stated that the surface of the Moon will have many hidden areas, formed by the tectonic shifts on the Moon's surface, and that many of these locations will have hidden treasures.
The following locations are confirmed.
- The Hellmouth
- Ocean of Storms
- The Moonbase
- Upper Citadel
- Lower Citadel
- Worm Way (possibly "Wormway")
