Yenaira was a class M moon in orbit around the gas giant Xalar. Yenaira was once covered by one huge ocean of water. Research shows that the world once supported abundant life. Some where, over 1000 years ago, a radical shift in its orbit brought Yanaira to close to Xalar. Xalar's massive gravity proceed to rip the atmosphere away from Yenaira. Once the air pressure drop to low, the great ocean started to boil away into space.

All that is remains is massive the skeletal remains of coral-like lifeforms. These structures streach miles up to the sky, lonely sentinals to the rich past of Yenaira.

Like marrow being leached from bone.... excellent story James... sad, but I suppose all things pass, nothing endures. (whoa, you got me talking like a greeting card.)
