Bajor VIII was the inhabited eighth planet with an inclined orbit in the Bajoran system. This system was located in the Bajor sector, a region of space in the Alpha Quadrant. This planet had two moons; one of these moons was identified as the "lower moon".
In 2369, Bajoran terrorist Tahna Los, aboard the runabout USS Yangtzee Kiang, rendezvoused with Lursa and B'Etor's Bird-of-Prey near the lower moon of Bajor VIII to receive a quantity of bilitrium explosive. The USS Ganges, monitoring the exchange from behind the second moon, attempted to intercept him, but Tahna threatened to detonate the bomb in low orbit and wipe out the colonies on the surface. The Ganges was forced to allow him to head towards the Bajoran wormhole. (DS9: "Past Prologue")
