Couldn't the "bloodmoon" referenced in the article just be a lunar eclipse or something (like how the moon in real life will turn a coppery-red color during an eclipse)? The text quoted from the Warcraft I manual doesn't specifically seem to state that the Bloodmoon is a celestial body of its own; if anything it sounds more like a moon-related event, such as an eclipse.

Still Orbiting?

How is it still orbiting Draenor... which is just a bunch of rocks now? I guess it takes time for it to go out of Orbit but still... kind of odd. OrcGrunt Doomhand HumanFootman talk

While in-game maps show Outland as a floating island thing (the alpha/beta even more so[1]), Unbroken on pages 26 and 27 hints at what I took as the planet's core still being visable at one point after the cataclysm (so it may still have been a sphere to some extent). Beyond the Dark Portal says that after the planet did what it did in the Twisting Nether a buch of spheres showed up, but I do not know how. Unbroken also mentions something like that on those two pages. I do not know if one is the Pale Lady. The quote from Unbroken is "When Nobundo returned to his familiar spot atop the mountain peaks the following day, he looked out onto a horizon gone mad. Smoke billowed into the sky, casting a black cloud over the land. The air burned his lungs. At the base of the cliff where he stood, a giant fissure had opened. Steam poured out, and when Nobundo leaned over, he could see a faint glow from deep within the earth. Large chunks had been ripped from the desert floor and were inexplicably floating high in the air. And portions of the sky itself looked almost like windows to... something. It seemed as if Nobundo could glimpse other worlds in those windows, some distant, some seemingly nearby, but whether it was real or some trick of the catastrophe Nobundo could not say."--SWM2448 18:10, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
SWM, if you could it might be helpful to add the various references post destruction, from BtDP, into this discussion as well for comparisons.Baggins (talk) 18:15, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
It was already ripped onto the wiki for the Outland page. Page 418. "Before Draenor was torn apart by the portal rifts, it was a vast planet of continents and seas, much like Azeroth. When the world was destroyed it was tossed into the Twisting Nether. It no longer had its sun, but its moon, the Pale Lady still hovered looking far larger than it ever did before. Other spheres now existed as well, including a rosy one, and a smaller light blue one."--SWM2448 18:23, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
