Re: To Moon, Or Not To Moon?

and if it was pulled back out of orbit by one of the suns you'd think that would also have a great affect on the planet as well . . . [edit: Silvercrest said it better ]

maybe the moon has a highly elliptical orbit around just one of the stars while the planet orbits both stars? the moon would periodically be outside of the planet's orbit as well as visible at night
it wouldn't technically be a moon, but another planetoid that occasionally become close enough to appear to be a moon
