Sinking Satellite

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.

I never thought about the friction in the planet atmosphere causes electromagnetic charges before colliding. clever!
