Banana Nebula NSP Exploration Expedition (NGC 3199)

Greetings CMDRs. CMDR ADM Infwhale here.

I have been out mapping the NSP sites around the NGC 3199 Nebula since March. Now, with a little community help and the launch of the Banana Nebula Expedition, there are numerous CMDR's hard at play, mapping all of the NSP's (See the reddit - Banana Nebula Expedition). So far, we've found over 3187 systems and 5931 NSP sites all bunched up in an sphere approx 1000 ly in diameter (See the image). If you're up for a little exploration or just passing by, please feel free to join us.
We could always use miners, explorers and someone to model the data. If you do decide to join, we've got a discord channel running so we'd be happy to invite you in.
There are some spectacular sites to see and we plan on running some events, etc while we're here.

In the Banana Nebula, I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.

Cereum Bullet Molluscs spitting electric fire off the shoulder of NGC 3199. I watched Rubeum Metallic Crystals glitter in the dark near DROKOE NJ-O D7-4. None of those moments will be lost in time, because we have a google sheet. Time to fly.

So far it's been a blast - big thanks to Infwhale Raf von Thorn for making this happen!

Come join us!
