From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
The Morning Star was a space station constructed by Clovis Bray I that orbited the icy moon of Europa. It served as a support station for the Deep Stone Crypt, but also built as a contingency plan to annihilate all the secrets of the facility if any entity breached the Crypt.
The station was disguised as an enormous fusion bomb to obliterate Europa and to further prevent any issues from escalating beyond Jupiter.
The House of Salvation breach awoke the Crypt AI and prompted it to activate the station's nuclear descent protocol. This would launch the Morning Star into the atmosphere of Europa and attempt to destroy the moon by setting off the nuclear warheads on board. The nuclear destruction was averted by the Guardians who worked together to deposit the nuclear cores into the station's ports.
However, since the station was already descending into Europa, it was destroyed as a result of the orbital collision.
