Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
That would make some very large tides.
The high orbiting stationary satellites would be yanked out of orbit. And, I don't even want think about the effect this would have on the tidal motion of the oceans..........
that was creepy
It's a great depiction of what Rosie O'Donnell's butt would look like as she walked past your house. Craters of Cellulite, of course.
At such a distance, expect to see whole coasts disappear everyorbit and by that I mean astronimically huge tidal waves thatcould sweep thousands of miles inland. When he moon was onthe opposite side the sea level could drop thousands of feet.
Anyone run the numbers on how much effect it would have on your weight as it passes overhead? I bet you would be able to jump quite a bit higher. Then there would be the opposite effect after the moon had set....
It wouldn't look like that. The moon would be torn into an asteroid belt around the Earth long before it descended to that altitude due to the tidal effects (see Roche limit). So what was left of the Earth after half the Moon crashed into it as meteors would be surrounded by a ring like Saturn. For a while.Of course everyone here is probably already aware of that and I'm just a pedantic twit:-D.
