Glowing Green Giants - The Definitive List

Yeah I'm sorry about that! I'd visited and scanned the system well over two weeks ago or so now since it was added to that list, before heading back to colonia a few days ago for repairs and handing in the explo data, but by that time i'd already completely forgotten about the system and it turns out it's original discoverer still hadn't handed the data in either :/ ... So i send my very sincere appologies!
Did you get any good screen shots of it?
 
I've come across gas giants with these green/pink spots on them once or twice before during my travels, i'm almost certain they were on these blue gas giants aswell, didnt realise they were worthy enough to be classed as GGG's. I normally screenshot my discoveries to go as records if they are of anything special, if i did screenshot those gas giants then i'll upload them here, but this was going back to like 2018 im sure, so may have to do some digging hah.

Please do. If they had ANY at all, it's technically a GGG and will get you on the honour roll. Also, it'll get us some more data on GGGs - having more to draw any conclusions from would be useful. If the spots are only purple however, it isn't a GGG but is still a notable discovery. Do you have any of the system names in those screenshots?
 
Well i double checked through everything I had but unfortunatly couldnt seem to find anything to suggest I'd recorded the system names for those gas giants I'd come across, likely never screenshoted them (n)

I have seen different colored spots on some of the big blue ones but none of them listed as an official GGG.
 
While passing through the Newton's Vault region, I found a Green Gas Giant orbiting the third star of this system last night, details as follows:


System: Flyue Bloae QN-Y c2-0
Orbiting star type: K8 Va
Planet ID: C 1
Planet type: Class II
Mass: 593.7786 E-ms
Temperature: 213 K
Rings: No
Moons: 4
Co-ordinates: -10844.1875 / -504.125 / 47701.125
Distance from Sol: 48920.83 LY
Discovered by: CMDR "Rusted Bulk" Mike





 
I've been thinking, with how prevalent tag-sniping has been that another column is added to the spreadsheet that credits the codex reporter. I think that would be a good compromise.
To analyse GGGs better, I've been making an extended spreadsheet with more data on the planets - all of the characteristics, stuff like mass code, system star types, atmosphere compositions and so on. I also added the names and dates (where available) of the in-game tag, EDSM upload and Codex report. Those are... a bit of a mess. See for yourself: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1zvY7Wj-NMJXFNTvHPzql-Iv0o_ZbkxyWuIG7TVXS4Y4/edit?usp=sharing

Boxel helium levels are still missing though.
 





Codex report was from Alesha78 on 3306-04-25
Thanks a bundle for taking the time to confirm this! Strange that 2 CIIs with similar green-ness get discovered toward Beagle within a couple of days of each other. Hopefully, this isn't the beginning of another slump in GGG discoveries.

I so badly want to find one of these!!
That's 24 now correct?
Mee too!! I was so excited when I heard the one recently discovered by CMDR "Rusted Bulk" Mike on the Perseus Reach expedition, so finding a new GGG has become one of my goals as well (even if the odds are very small).
 
Last night, after a rush to the end of Perseus Reach Expedition (It was closer than going to XA and then back), and then rushing from Semotus Beacon back to XA (did 231 jumps in the second-last session)... I got my tags on the GGG at Flyue Bloae QN-Y c2-0.

Did get a little hurried when I saw others had been visiting that system on EDSM's traffic report!
