Baraddo, also known as "The Prodigal", was the outermost moon of Bajor. It had an unusually wide and elliptical orbit which only brought it into view of Bajor once every five years. The chemical composition of the moon caused it to glow when it came close to the Bajoran wormhole. The event was called the "Illumination of The Prodigal," named for a figure in Bajoran religion. (DS9 novel: Devil in the Sky)
In 2370, Baraddo was due to fly by close to the Bajoran wormhole and the recently repositioned Deep Space 9, this opportunity for a close view attracted visitors to the station to watch the spectacular of the illumination. At the same time a number of Horta eggs arrived on the station for delivery to Bajor, they hatched ahead of schedule and began to eat the station, fortunately the moon entered transporter range just in time to transport the Horta to the moon where they could eat all they wanted. On the moon the Horta discovered valuable deposits of uranium, pergium, and latinum. (DS9 novel: Devil in the Sky)
In 2374, attempting to find the location of an Orb of the Pah-wraith, Benjamin Sisko had an holographic image of Bajor as seen from Baraddo displayed in a holosuite. (DS9 novel: The Fall of Terok Nor)
