MegaBojan1993 : I would freak out If I saw the moon so close to the earth :)

lyn1337 : Aaaaaaahhh ... RUN!!!

Matthew The Great Coin Roll Hunter : Great topic. LIKED the video!

That Keeps Killing You In Titan Mode That one Satyr : Two words. Tidal Waves

Seize The Day : This makes me very uncomfortable and I don't know why

MisterLetsPlay (ohne Lets Play) : am i the only one who has read isis?

The flamingsword : My heart rate went up watching that

Rekha Sharma : Does that mean we get to see solar eclipses every day?

InternationalSongs : That's cool af. But terrifying at the same time. It still would SUCK when the moon blocked the sunlight! :D

MrGriff305 : well then.. I hope we never ever see that in real life

Mario Echeverria : As soon as the big moon appeared I was like: oh nope nope, STOP RIGHT THERE *pauses the video*

Marvin Kitfox : If the moon orbited at 400km, it would be penetrating the ground by a couple thousand kilometers and completely subsurface! Orbit distance is taken to center of the orbiting object, from the center of the orbited object (in the case of astronomical bodies), or from the surface (in the case of artificial satellites) . I assume you mean here if the closest surface was 400 km from the equator?

Mae Borowski : I read the title as isis

Xallifa : No thanks . I'm fine with where the moons is already

A Man Apart : It won't be as peacefull as the video suggests. It will be catastrophic. I'm no scientist but the oceans would go crazy, huge tidal waves, earthquakes etc.

opticsarebomb : good luck with the tides

Maxer13 : It would fall on earth. It's too close. Far beyond earth's roche limit.

Brian T. : This video gave me a stroke

korrdavl : Your videos are unintentionally terrifying. I love them.

Bryan Elliott : Can you do one _at_ the Roche limit?

ᅚᅚ ᅚᅚ : Dawn of the Final Day

Mario : You know how the ISS uses thrusters to keep it from falling into earth? Well, the moon can't do that. YOU ARE DED

Kitzy kat : well the aliens would definitely be clearer of course

George Campbell : This is very cool, especially with the atmospheric effects. Now add in the lava and the 10,000 foot high tidal surges!

Brianboy9494 : Well, the thing is that the ISS orbits Earth at an altitude of about 400 km above sea level. But the moon has a radius of more than 1700 km. So the moon could not orbit Earth at that altitude. However, it could orbit Earth at an altitude of 1700 km + 400 km = 2100 km. At least until said tidal forces shred it to pieces. Not to speak of the extreme tidal waves this would cause on the surface of our planet or the tidal effects on Earth's crust and atmosphere.

Jonah O'Brien : The moon would not exist there because it would be destroyed by tidal forces

tubedude54 : There would be no life on earth as we know it if this was the case. Gravitational forces would cause the surface of the earth to stay molten as it would constantly be moving up and down as the moon orbited the earth! I also seem to remember reading somewhere that there is a distance that if the moon is within it from the earths surface the moon would disintegrate from gravitational forces and form rings around earth like Saturn has...

Prestyn Chapman : Hey I love majora's mask


kiran rawat : Now imagine what would tides look like.

Pixelated Icon : Majoras mask!

Emily Aquino : thanks I hate it

Cem Karlıdağ : 420

Info Warrior : Imagine Jupiter!

jianlih josh : what the freak .... so cool

hello : anyone else thought the title said "ISIS"?

L4BYRINTH HOUSE : Research flat earth. The ISS isn't actually in space . This is just not real anymore.

Wizardwiwizard : Can somebody explain for me why it looks transparent?

gnbman : Only problem with the video is that the moon isn't rotating so that the same side is always facing Earth.

Tyrone Hardnett : We'll have solar eclipses each day! ●○ =Solar eclipse ○=Sun ●=Moon

Treebeard : It's neat how the moon becomes more transparent as it gets closer to Earth ;)

lesonen1 : Two words; Tidal forces.

Cranjis McBasketball : "You may fire when ready"

Jarek 2210 : Zajebiste!

Anime Guru : Is that the moon or the Death Star from Rogue One ?

tyler225905 : Dawn of The Final Day 24 Hours Remain

Lucas Nicoara : Roche limit...?

o MC and Tutorials : in this video we can now see the dark side of the moon

alfredo Nunya : So it would be clear....got it 👌
