Triton's past by JustV23 Triton's past by JustV23
I got inspired by few articles about Triton's (Neptune's largest moon) origins. There is a theory that after Triton got caught by Neptune it got heated from the insides by Neptune's tidal forces.
And that interior heat caused water ice melt and Triton for some time had liquid oceanic surface. After Triton's orbit around Neptune stabilized tidal forces became weaker and so interior heat also slowly faded. Then this ocean freeze solid.
So, i imagined this ocean covered by some steam clouds forming from warm oceanic surface. I think Triton may had pretty dense atmosphere at those times...

Now this is beautiful! So inviting, clouds effect and poses are great. Bravo! Making apparent asteroids near the sun more chaotic will benefit, but who cares -- its already great.
