How many moons does Eternia have, according to the 2002 version of canon?

I know FILMation's version had (I think) 5, according to the spacescape painting.  However, I'm working on something that specifically fits the latter series, and I can't find an image or even a reference to the moons.  And it's making me nuts, because I could've sworn that somewhere in the first five episodes or so there was an image with multiple moons in the sky ... but if I can't put my finger on it, I can't be sure there was more than one.  Or, indeed, one.  Well, there has to be a minimum of one, you can't have people wondering about an eclipse if there's never been a moon.

Anyway, my Google-fu is weak tonight.  I'm going past it and working on other stuff, but I'll have to come back eventually.  Eternia has an equator, oceans and/or seas, and seasons; everything else checks out for the science end of the MacGuffin.  If there are two or three moons, all can be handwaved; if there are five, I'm going to have to redo the math, because the orbit won't work properly.

Uhm, maybe ask that question on he-man.org? I'm sure one of the die-hards there ought to know, or be able to give an idea. It's been so long since I've watched any classic He-Man eps that I couldn't tell you. :)

Ehh, I'm not going to go back there and hope they've developed a Theory of Consistent Moderation over the past decade. But eventually, if I keep staring at this post and trying new search terms, the Internet will tell me!

Tried the Eternia entry on Wikipedia. It's a fairly nice writeup, but nothing off the surface of the world. Oh, well. Doing a search for "eternia moon" gets me a lot of references to the classic cartoon, which is what is not being used this go-round. Tomorrow I'll try "eternia night -FILMATION -classic" or something like that, see if I can get any images, and this weekend I'll dig the DVDs back out and skim through the episodes again.
