Yet I fear the crystal and jade mansions
are much too high and cold for me.
Dancing with my moonlit shadow,
It does not seem like the human world.[1]

The Ocean of Storms (also known as Mare Imbrium) is a location on the Moon[2], accessible in Destiny and Destiny 2's expansion, Shadowkeep.

It was here that the Guardians of the Last City first battled Crota and his spawn. The Consensus believed they were strong enough to reclaim the moon but underestimated Crota and his power. It was said that Crota's power cracked the moon and "lit the sky green with fire". The battle became a massacre has thousands of Guardians fell—even the legendary Titan, Wei Ning, was personally killed by Crota. A mass retreat was called and the Vanguard decreed the Moon off-limits.[3] Some years later the disastrous attempt to reclaim the moon would be called The Great Disaster.

Ever since the Last City abandoned the Moon, it became the Hive's base of operations in the Solar System. Now Hive temples breach the surface, entrances into the vast necropolis below.[4][1] Chief among them is the Hellmouth, which borders the Anchor of Light, Archer's Line, and the Temple of Crota. Following the discovery of the Pyramid, the Scarlet Keep was constructed in the Northeast portion of the Ocean of Storms known as Sorrow's Harbor.
