1) Still sitting on the ground at Witch head sector LC-V C2-10 which is a double. Been logging between groups like you said for 2000->2100 last night and nothing. Now I did walk away from my computer between 0530h to 1210h game time but nothing moved. Going to stay for a while more but at least out here don't think they are turning up.

2) re times of encounters I went through every video on YouTube and a few other streaming services and these are the ruff times I got (all times are in game time)

Uploaded on the 1st: 00:20, 03:30, 04:30, 05:30, 06:30
Uploaded on the 2nd: 00:20, 03:30, 05:30,05:49, 06:09, 06:02, 06:10, 07:33, 10:00, 10:33, 10:51, 11:22, 12:58, 21:10*, 22:27*

The times are based on the ingame clock as seen in the videos, some times I can get a time before the encounter or after. Not checked for any more uploaded videos since but will check later

Appears to just be random then, shame. It seems like steady pattern at first but then it gets quicker and quicker. Interesting. The switching thing could still take forever. I honestly think the best is getting into open where the most cmdrs can come in and out, because each new cmdr ups the chances of the event occuring, sadly, doing that just opens the doors for the griefers.
 
It's my belief that the UnknownArtefacts are propulsion for the Thargoid vessels.

I tried my best to explain everything in my picture.
The orange trail does come directly from the possible UA's, and the engines create the gravitational distortion which is their way of travel. So the possible UA's are almost certainly engines - just are they actually UA's?
 
Yes, this is my point. IF the MA/other materials on the barney spikes are not being harvested then there is no resource conflict as the basis for war. Moreover the flowership event would not be "harvesting" as we understand the term, it could be "refuelling" the flowership, or it could perhaps be the flowership "refuelling" the barney. We don't yet know enough about the processes involved, we need more science!

Looking at the vids frame by frame, it seems to me that the intense beam goes from the barnie to the ship.
 
I've waited from 14h30 to 18h30 at Pleiades Sector OI-T C3-7 A 6 -42.78° -21.71 and nothing... the times i am giving are GMT+1 (Paris time that is GMT+2 in summer). another session 20h20 to 21:44 GMT+1

I wonder how deep the barnacles go into the ground (I mean in lore, not just the model that you can clip through the planet surface to see) - who knows what it's actually tapping into. The barnacles might just be a kind of side effect of a different process?

I didn't break it down by site tbh so there might be something in the timers idea. I'm thinking if you want a good chance get to one of the sites active sites around 0530 or 1000h and stay for an hour.

PaulR, were you in the same instance or switching from time to time?

I imagine them being much bigger underground , with roots keeping it lodged in place

Maybe until the very core of the planet. A kind of tunnel or pipe to allow the ship to suck off the melted metal from the core.
 
Don't know if this is normal, but on my way to this sector, the one of the surface thargoide event, I was scanning a system, and casually stopped to check a random signal source that appeared near me, and... yeah! Anomay Detected [Threat 4], I know this is a Unkown Artifact, so I go down, and shoot it down to get the material (the UA would corrode my cargo).

Then I go supercruise, another signal... another Anomaly, suddenly just next to it another signal/ anomaly, and further away another one, 4 Unknown Artifacts in a row?

Im currently scanning the whole system, as a side note, Im only 2 or 3 jumps away of the system where the first hyperdiction happened.

Data Link Scanner works, but shows nothing.

The system is ARIES DARK REGION UE-P B6-1

Edit: Just theory, as I found them near the sun as I jumped, could be UA the equivalent of our Nav Beacon?

Update: 6 in a row...

Before I was even fully loaded into the instance I was taking fire. Barely got out
Ok, thanks. I'll add that as an ongoing mission for Cobra Kai. If there are other sites that "suddenly" become hotspots, please report them. It will make it easier for groups like Cobra Kai to know which Barnacle to advice people to go to.

System is very hot - had SDC in one instance, then a corvette, clipper, fas group hitting folk in the next (these guys have been around from last night) - and I just got my first "win" - got 2 ships plus myself out (on 17%) hull from what I think was 2 clippers and something smaller (didn't get a good look - to busy sticking torps and packhounds in the lead clipper).
They are getting sneakier too - coming up quiet and low trying to come round on the srv's from behind the hill next to the barnacles.
Off to eat - will be back later - I'm the looney in the Ieagle :D - tempted to bring the keelback out as well for fighter fun.
