Lost Souls 2 Act 3 – Waypoint 9

28 Feb 2020

Golden Chalice Nebula

System name

Oephaif ST-M b34-175

Distance to waypoint



One side of this nebula is dark and the other has red-green colours that look golden from the right angle, hence the name. To one side of this nebula can be found a dense patch of brown and red dwarf stars but there are enough scoopable stars for it not to present any real hazard.

The Golden Chalice Nebula is immense. Coming in from the direction of Candy Floss and Thunderclap nebulas, the Golden Chalice shows its reddish and green hues. Occasionally, if the lighting angle is right, these colors change to a deep golden yellow. Only two stars in habit this system, roughly 70K Ls apart. While the glare will limit the vista’s of the nebula cloud, great visual of it are garnered by traveling the distance between them.

Expedition Base Camp

The base camp for this waypoint will be Surface signal: Biological [5] on planet ABCD 3 A in the Oephaif QY-S e3-120 system.

POI’s Along the Way

Bonfire Nebula – Like any good bonfire at a festival, this huge nebula can be seen from a very long distance away and provides a spectacular backdrop and a beacon to navigate in the region. Its interior is densely packed with stars and home to a sky full of red and orange colours, with the bright Galactic Core obscured from sight.

The Aquarium – A Planetary Nebula with a Black Hole at its heart, and several planets orbiting an A-class star 147K Ls away. The only remarkable feature is the number of Nebulae visible from here and giving the system the look of being inside an aquarium, hence the name.
