The equations of motion of the moon, planets and other bodies are known with great accuracy, and are used to generate tables for celestial navigation.
Mars' innermost moon Phobos is a prime example, and is expected to either impact Mars' surface or break up into a ring within 50 million years.
This mechanism is extremely weak for most stellar objects, only becoming significant in cases where there is a combination of extreme mass and extreme acceleration, such as with fl holes or neutron stars that are orbiting each other closely.

 New Evidence of Artificiality at Cydonia on Mars
The most striking example is Saturn's moon Iapetus, which spins so slowly (once per 80 days) that only one side could have been coated by the blast.
Body C and Mars were most probably former moons of Planet V prior to the explosion of the latter.
It therefore seemed reasonable to suggest that Mars was not an original planet, but rather a moon of Planet V before the explosion of the latter.

He also thought that the Earth was at the center of the universe, and that the Sun, Moon, planets, and stars revolved around it.
He discovered four moons of Saturn, but is best remembered for first seeing the division (now named after him) between the A and B rings.
Barnard is known for his achievements in astrophotography and for his discovery of comets, nebulas, Amalthea (a moon of Jupiter, in 1892), and the nearby star named for him.

 COAST TO COAST AM WITH GEORGE NOORY: SHOWS
He further hypothesized that the heavily eroded Iapetus may once have been "a huge ancient space station," and its ridges could have been part of a field-manipulated propulsion system.
While Darling concurred that Iapetus is "wondrously bizarre," he said he could not see evidence of straight edges or polyhedron shapes from looking at the high-res images posted on the Cassini site.
Yet both agreed that Iapetus is deserving of further investigation, and Hoagland urged calling various contact numbers to encourage NASA to redirect the Cassini Probe to image Iapetus before its next scheduled time in 2007.
