|Type||Terran Moon Planet|
|Day/Night Cycle||1 Minute 55 seconds|
Desolo is a Terran Moon Planet in Astroneer and is the moon of Sylva. It has no atmosphere, and is pockmarked with craters and bare rocks scattered around the surface. Several of the craters are filled with grassy plants, which offer a good source of Organic. With its primary resource being Wolframite and due to its proximity to Sylva, Desolo is often the second stop on the player's adventure. The Tungsten derived from the available Wolframite allows players to craft Medium Generators and the Chemistry Lab. The former makes the player's power management less dependent on winds and the day/night cycle. The latter allows for production of basic composite materials, which are essential ingredients for more sophisticated crafting recipes.
Desolo has an extraordinarily short day/night cycle, with each cycle lasting about 1 minute and 55 seconds.
|Sphalerite||Gray Plains and Mantle Layer|
Desolo has no gases due to the lack of a proper atmosphere.

Once a Gateway Chamber has been activated, the Gateway Engine opens in the core. Placing a single Zinc in one of the slots reveals the Geometric Triptych. Placing the Geometric Triptych in the slot on the opposite side (above you) will activate the engine, revealing the Odd Stone and allowing teleportation to the core as well as revealing the inactive node for the Gateway Portal if it has not yet been discovered.
- The Apollo Lunar Lander spawns on the surface of Desolo, and has a camera that the player can use to take a photograph of themself with the lander. It was added during the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing.
