      o.o what do you mean?

    • Masser orbits Nirn but Secunda orbits Masser, so on Nirn at least one moon does sometimes hide behind the other.

      Well if it orbits the first moon, then we'd see it as it goes around, and if it doesn't and it just orbits Earth, then the second moon would orbit at a different speed so it wouldn't be hidden all the time either way.

      Wouldn't they orbit at the same speed if the mass of the second moon was smaller proportionately to the difference in centrifugal and gravitational force?

      Edit: Either way, NASA and the ESA have sent plenty of cameras and such more than far enough away from Earth and The Moon to see if there was a second moon hiding behind it.
