Finally! It's a weird thing to focus on, I know, but it always bothered me that it wasn't there.

Eh the blue 2nd moon reminds of the green 2nd moon from Warhammer fantasy. XD but cool anyway.

According to wowwiki: http://www.wowwiki.com/Moon
The Earthmother sent the Blue Child away to learn about the universe upon noticing the coming of the Burning Legion, explaining its disappearance prior to the Burning Crusade expansion. It will be a very long time before it returns.
Lore wise, it has been...close to ten years, I think? (WoW Timeline wise, not real time)

I think Elune sent the Blue Child to her room without dinner to think about what she's done... ;)

Assuming it went missing deliberately, as a plot point, and isn't just a glitch they finally fixed, I wonder what the religious significance of its return is going to be.

As a Burning Crusade baby, I didn't even know there were originally two moons. Thanks for the tip!

I'm hoping it ties into the fan theory that Elune is a Naaru. Maybe the Blue Child was a "younger" Naaru that was sent to explore for possible future destinations for the Draenei.

Well it would have something to do with the Earthmother as she's the one who sent it away in the first place.
