Come start your new year 3310 with an expedition that tours around to various real-world celestial objects in the in-game galaxy! Celebration of Early Astronomy 6 is the 6th iteration of CMDR Kezika's expedition focusing on real celestial objects. This time around we will be heading eastward over the course of 7 weeks to the furthest east real star, V429 Carinae.

We begin our journey on January 7th from the "Keltim" system, which is the real binary star system HIP 17346 as well as home to our player group. We will then proceed from there on an 7 week, 7 leg trip. We will also be looking to discovering new interesting waypoints in the eastern reaches of the galaxy in areas with low density of known POIs in the Galactic Mapping Project and Galactic Exploration Catalogs.

Looks like a thing to do. Count me in! o7

Some of those waypoints toward the end are a bit much for my 44ly Courier, even with boost. We'll see how far I can make it before I have to hitch a ride on a carrier.
For the experienced explorer, I highly recommend signing up to this exploration. This will be your only chance to reach V429 Carinae, a very distant wolf-rayet star, without flying your own fleet carrier 40,000 ly!
