[Greyspace] Iggwilv has a base on Luna (Raenei)!

I just found out something as amazing as when I found out that the Dragonlance novel Darkness and Light featured a trip to Lunitari (and some "secondary Spelljammer canon" in the Dragonlance canon). Grodog just posted this, in reply to my [Greyhawk-lite][Greyspace-lite] Monsters of the Moon topic:

They don't give a setting, so I'm assuming it's a core-3e (and therefore implied Greyhawk) thing. (That means I'm also assuming that any moon connection would be one of Oerth's two moons).
Thanks for the pointers---the moons have held my interest since Iggwilv's moon base appears in passing in Return of the Eight.
I checked the DMs Guild page for Greyhawk: Return of the Eight and it's not on Print on Demand yet. So I'll have to wait...or buy a second-hand copy.

I'm going to put this on my wishlist, but I'd like to know how much there is about Iggwilv's moon base in the book.

I'd also like to know if there is any other material that can tell me about this base in particular or other places where Iggwilv has built any sort of complex. Do we know what sort of minions normally work for Iggwilv?

Which of Oerth's two moons is this base on? How do you think the base might fit in with things mentioned in SJR6 Greyspace?

EDIT: Topic title changed, as Ripvanwormer has confirmed that the base is on Luna (Raenei).

It's on Luna (Raenei). Iggwilv is served by demons and yugoloths. There's a list of her many servants and homes here:

Return of the Eight includes some information on Luna in general. It's very compatible with the information in Greyspace.

That blog covers pretty much all of it. I'm including the aborted invasion from Luna in the next edition of my SJ Chronology.
