Waypoint 2: Blue Flash Nebula

1 Apr 2022

Greetings, LS3 CMDRs!

Here we are at last, the beginning of the great journey you’ve been preparing for months to embark upon! We set off today from Hajangai to see sights unseen, explore systems unexplored and perhaps make a few happy memories and friends along the way. We will return home in some weeks time more experienced and with stories to tell. Expedition Leadership wishes each and every one of you the best of luck and safe travels! We cannot wait to hear updates on your journey from the campfires and headlight circles at Meetups!

Without further ado, it’s my pleasure to present the first two Points of Interest and Waypoint 1 for Lost Souls 3!

POI 1: Star of India

System: Star of India

A large, blue 09 Class V star, approximately 2,000 LYs ‘west’ of Sol in the heart of the Sadr Region.

This massive star was named after the famous ‘Star of India’ sapphire, one of the largest gems of that type. The gem almost flawless and is unusual in that it has stars on both sides of the stone.

POI 2: Gigas

System: Plaa Eurk DF-D c26-1

A gas giant with water based life in binary orbit with another gas giant. It has 4 gas giant moons, all with rings.

Waypoint 1: Blue Flash Nebula

System: Csi+19-20201

The Blue Flash Nebula (also known as NGC 6905) is a standard planetary nebula surrounding a Wolf-Rayet star. The nebula is a light blue color, and best seen from outside the nebula proper. The nebula was discovered by William Herschel in 1784. Two hot, high-metal worlds can be found in orbit of the host star.

As a reminder, we will be conducting our first Mass Jump on Sunday, April 3rd from just outside Schwann Port in Hajangai at the below times and encourage everyone to attend if they are able.
