Dead right, except that "artificial moon" is an enspelled mountain.

Moon: large object orbiting planet. A mountain can be an artificial moon, if you can raise it.

Large object orbiting planet: satellite. Just thought I'd throw that in...

True. The definition of when a satellite becomes a moon is unclear. Especially if you qualify it with 'artificial'.

The Webster Dictionary says that a satellite is a " celestial body orbiting another of larger size " (apart from its other meanings) and that a moon is a " satellite; specifically: a natural satellite of a planet". So they're basically synonyms in this case, and Naia is both a satellite of Irdya and one of its moons.

It goes around and around, just like this discussion.

Did anyone get that the entire point of my question was framing a really bad pun?
Don't go to Glowing Fish for advice, he will say both yes and no.

Also, groan.
Yep ;)

I recognized the pun but I didn't realize it was the entire point of your question.

He asked when the binary was going to get released? Will Ivanovic ban him for that?

The word "Sun" is actually a pronoun and is the name of our solar systems star, not a noun.

"Suns" is catchier, though I suppose "Under the Burning Stars" Or "Under the Burning Satellites" (That reflect the aforementioned star/sun(s)) Would be more technically correct :)
