    POI Name: The Lost Marble Nebula

    POI Type: Planetary Nebula

    GalMap Ref: Tepo XP-X e1-3474

    Description: Resembling a semi-translucent marble with vibrant streaks of light reds and dark blues, this planetary nebula formed around a black hole. With no light source within the system, the nebula forms a dark blue shroud over the two Class I gas giants that accompany the black hole.

    GalMap Ref: CSI+09-19289

    Desc: "NGC 6803 is a planetary nebula in the constellation Aquila. The nebula was discovered on September 17, 1882 by American astronomer Edward Charles Pickering. The nebula is a nice blue color and is estimated at roughly a tenth of a light year across. The nebula contains the host Wolf-Rayet star and a collection of gas giants and smaller bodies. "

    Desc: "NGC 6804 is a blue-green bi-lobe nebula in Aquila. It was discovered on Aug 25, 1791 by William Herschel. The nebula appears to be the result of ejected stellar material from the massive and hot O-type star found at the nebula center. There are no other objects inside the nebula and little research has been done on this object."

    Desc: "NGC 6781 is a planetary nebula in Aquila. It was discovered on Jul 30, 1788 by William Herschel, and described as 'a planetary nebula, faint, large, round, very suddenly brighter middle and disc, small star to northeast'. Recent observation reveals a blue-green nebula around a Wolf-Rayet star with a collection of gas giants, high-metal planets, and small rocky bodies. A single Y-class dwarf can also be found. "

    ( I could not upload this image by weight)

    Getting to this site was not easy, you can only with a neutron star that is just above colony point, and you need the fuel back, I must admit that I perished on the first attempt; And because of the great suffering and great cry of my wife, I want to request, in the case of a POI being created, that its name be CYJ, in honor of my wife, thank you all.

    You get a +1 Rep from me, even though the software won't allow me to give you more rep!
    Right on Commander!

    Apart from that, please take into account that the GMP's naming conventions include that non-procedural deep sky objects from relevant star catalogues are not to be renamed but included in the project with their catalogue names.

    Could you please check that reference system and get back here please?

    Thanks in advance and thanks for the fantastic effort

    Fly safe!
    Thanks for the double-checking! I completely forgot that non-procedural objects are not to be renamed... thats my fault because I just stumbled upon it without looking for it! While you are correct that this cluster is not located directly in the void between arms, it is located in a vacant part of Orion Spur adjacent to the Sagittarius Gap. The photo indicates there is this relatively empty pocket of stars and dust on the fridges of the arm adjacent to the gap.

    As such, I have changed the reference system and rewitten the description as follows:

    POI Name: NGC 4463 Open Cluster in Musca

    POI Type: Star Cluster

    GalMap Ref: HIP 60974

    Desc: Lying 3,400 light years from the bubble is an open cluster of more than 25 systems dominated by a pair of 8th magnitude stars, HIP 60974 at its center and HIP 60971 at its end. At an apparent magnitude of about 7.2, the cluster is not rich, but does display a very nice zig-zag line of 10, 11 and 12th magnitude stars running through HIP 60974 from northeast to southwest. While there are a few M & K class stars nearby, the NGC 4463 Open Cluster is a galactic anomaly because of its apparent location in a relatively vacant part of Orion Spur on the fringes of the Sagittarius Gap. The stars that make up the cluster likely formed as an echo of a violent supernova explosion whose glowing gases have since blown away, leaving only these relatively massive B and F class stars. Moreover, the cluster is unique because it contains stars from numerous catalog designations: Bonner Durchmusterung / HIP / and 2Mass. The cluster contains a large ammonia world, a few water worlds, and countless gas giants. Discovered by Sir John Herschel in 1847 at the Cape of Good Hope with an 18-inch f/13 speculum telescope, he described it as follows: “Cluster VIII class; poor; scattered. The northern of two stars 8th mag taken.”

    POI Name: NGC 1333 Nebula
    POI Type: Nebula
    GalMap Ref: NGC 1333 Sector FB-X C1-4 (closest system)

    Desc: "NGC 1333 is a red-green reflection nebula located in the Perseus Molecular Cloud that was first discovered by Eduard Schoenfeld in 1855. It is the most active region of star formation within the Perseus Molecular Cloud, featuring an estimated 150 young, low-mass stars. Only one system, a 178 million year old T-Tauri star located on the outer edge of the cloud, is currently bright and distinct enough for an FSD guidance system to target, but it offers an amazing views of NGC 1333, the California Nebula and Barnard's Loop."

    New POI:

    POI Name: Phantom Streak Nebula
    POI Type: Planetary Nebula
    GalMap Ref: BD-00 3630

    Desc: "Phantom Streak Nebula (proper name NGC 6741) is a small blue-purple nebula in Aquila. The nebula appears to be rich in helium based on spectral lines. The central star is a standard Wolf-Rayet which is rapidly blowing off outer layers to form the nebula. Other than a companion M-class star, no other bodies are found inside the nebula. NGC 6741 was originally discovered by Edward Charles Pickering in 1882, and the origin of the name 'Phantom Streak' is obscure, as it was not given by Pickering."

    Proposed POI name: Damselfly Nebula
    POI type: Planetary nebula
    Location: CLOOMAA YE-R E4-113
    Description: Vivid blue nebula surrounding a neutron star, resembling the protruding eyes of a blue damselfly. There are no landable bodies in this system but there are many systems close by where travellers can land and bathe in the blue light of this striking nebula.

    New planetary nebula.

    POI type: Planetary nebula + black hole

    Proposed POI name: El otro ojo de SAURON (The other eye of SAURON)

    SYSTEM: Wembeau KM-V e2-12

    Hello again dear friends: I have found a beautiful planetary nebula that I do not see on the ''discovery'' map, this beautiful cloud of dust is reigned by a black hole, and also has planet landings. As it looks this little I remember the eye of SAURON but in blue, so I thought that could be the other eye of sauron XD XD, and nothing more thanks you and fly in peace.

    Thanks you !!!

    Name: Regal and Celerity
    Game map search ref: Dryaea Flee GC-D d12-3089
    Description: The planet Celerity is an Earth-like world that orbit its parent, the gas giant Regal, incredibly close. It completes its orbit in only 1.26 days, and since the giant has rings that are inclined to the planet's orbit, anyone on the surface could witness incredible views even during the day. However, the night sky would be even more impressive, as the system is inside a colourful nebula.
    Screenshot reference:

    Note: the ELW is the current record holder for the shortest orbital period on a "natural" (proc. gen., non-terraformed) ELW, due to being tidally locked to the giant. I wasn't sure if I should include this though.

    POI Name: Ring Mine
    POI Type: Deep Space Outpost
    GalMap Ref: 2MASS J03291977+3124572

    Desc: "The Ring Mine is an asteroid facility nestled in the rocky rings of a Class V gas giant orbiting a youngish Class B star that is only a few light years outside of the NGC 1333 Nebula. It is currently controlled by the independent Deep Space Mining corporate faction and is also inhabited by a self-styled group of independent anarchists that call themselves "The Associates." Base services include the full suite of commodities trading, mission and passenger boards, cartography dealers, and crew lounge, but docking facilities are currently only equipped to provide basic refueling, repairing and restocking."
