    There are plenty of supernova remnants with ejecta clouds around the galactic core worth exploring and "tagging"

    Is it too cheesy to want to call a system I've just discovered with 4 Water Worlds - Oceana?


    What I thought was a stretch of badlands near my position wasn't actually too bad because there were a few type M and K stars scattered throughout it. However I had just flown through 5 systems in a row that only had stars in them. It was beginning to feel a bit barren and I was feeling the need to quench my exploring thirst I then jumped into a system that returned some objects and they looked promising. Once I had scanned the system I had discovered 4 Water Worlds within it, the most I have found in a single system. However I could not quench my thirst there as 3 of them had Ammonia atmospheres... best to stay away I thought.

    4 water worlds in one system is quite rare I think, so could be worthy of an index entry

    When I get the first dozen or so submissions of interesting locations I'll update the relevant map.

    Can we have establishing a station at Sagittarius A* a community goal too?

    Dammit I can't give you rep yet, so +Infinity for you sir.

    I like this. Humanising the Galaxy. I think it would be useful for my FGE friends to help out too: they've seen lots of interesting things.

    I haven't been to many places, but one place I've mentioned once or twice before that's close to my heart is Nyuena Ro-Z d184, in what I have called the Nyuena Open Cluster Sector, close to the edge of the northern bulge of the Galaxy some 1800LY directly above Sagittarius A*. In my 22LY-limited Cobra I had an amazing view of the Galaxy below. It's not the highest anybody has been, but it's the highest I have been:



    Additional videos of this place:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p0fJOdeik2M - an Earth-like water world which I'd now like to call "The Reptile Nest"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9RPUqvAnDbE - the sole ringed gas giant which has no name so far
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyCGZl2B7RA - I call this place "New Mars."

    I don't have a name for the system, though. Unofficially I once named it "Zulu Point" but that's way too self-indulgent. I dunno, I think as it's up in the roof of the Galaxy I'll call the system "Cracked Canopy."

    I have screenshots and a location for what I want to call the Annihilator Stellar Nursery, as it is located close to the great annihilator black hole. Will post them when I get home.

    Some cracking POI's there I'll add them to the maps once SirKiwi has submitted his data.

    Remember to list the procedural name too so I can pinpoint it on the map.

    Here is the Annihilator Stellar Nursery- a dense bundle of bright, young stars in the sky. There is a lot of mystery surrounding this area, as all these stars showed up in one jump (a glitch or not, I don't know)- guess I must have just gotten close enough then. It is still visible several jumps later, although slightly dimmer. I see a lot of stars but I can't tell exactly where the stellar forge I see in the sky is in the map- it is an obvious surge in B type stars but not what seems to be abnormal throughout the galaxy. There are multiple O types as well. There is a sharp line dividing a huge amount of B type stars, with an area nearly devoid around here. Not sure why. A beautiful sight no matter the details, very dense bright stars, I recommend everyone to come see the Annihilator Nursery.
    I didn't remember to write down the name of the system I saw the nursery from first, and best, but from the system I am in now you can see the nursery and from there get closer to it.

    Also, a system I was in earlier with a better view:
    DRYAA FLYI XR-H D11-991

    The nursery is over 3000 LY from its namesake, the Great Annihilator, but it seems to be the nearest point of interest so I felt it was appropriate.

    Here are some screenshots of the nursery:

    If you do visit, please let me know what you think

    Edit: My journey continues and so do the huge stars. I dunno what this means anymore- but this area is beautiful.

    It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems with just potatoes.

    Isn't a supernova an explosion which leaves either a neutron star or black hole in its wake?

    Yeah, pretty much. That would have to just be a nova if I am not mistaken, or perhaps an earlier remnant.
