The Moonbase is a mystery. The life spark of humanity has long gone out. It’s now overrun by moon dust, meteors, and ghosts. What happened here?

The Anchor of Light (referred to as Moonbase during development) is a now abandoned human outpost on the moon. It is located near the Hellmouth. Established during the Golden Age, the tower acted as a relay station between Earth and the rest of the colonial effort throughout the Solar System. [1]

Points of Interest

The comms tower is the base's main focal point. The tower's height makes it a good vantage point for Guardians.[1] [2]

Trivia

  • The idea for the Moonbase was one of the earliest in the development of Destiny, in circulation by 2009. It is meant to be familiar in nature, reminiscent of the International Space Station, but also exotic as per its proximity to the Hellmouth.[1]
