Look, if it took thousands of people cursing and ridiculing that minimoon earlier this year for it to get lost and yeet itself out of Earth's orbit, it's going to take a lot more than four witches to hurt the real moon's self esteem.

To be fair, the minimoon was always just here for a good time, not a long time. And it did peace out in March, so draw your own conclusions on that one.

@erinbee Yep. It left right when things got serious down here.

@erinbee Though our Moon is leaving us at a rate of a few cm a year...

@evilscientistca Cool, they're playing the long game then. Just give it 50 billion years and it'll stop effecting the tides on its own.

@erinbee It's also lowing down the Earth's rotation. Longer days ahead!
