The great big Odyssey Screenshots thread

Another planet, same system, same ship (Cobra MKIV). No atmosphere, but still a lovely oddity!

spotted a few weird looking blobs.while flying low on Hip 7338
and bagged myself a reward for logging bacturum auragus Teal.

Expedition 5 checking in!

My first undiscovered system contains 3 planets of interest. The first is an volcanically active moon.

Almost a potato moon...

No atmosphere, but 1.3km deep canyons provide a race-track like challenge that should provide a simple challenge for hooners - if they had the guts to come into Ody...

The sky is dark as we are travelling close to the edge of the galaxy.

The other planets are over there: an atmospheric world, and a close binary system that should provide spectacular views. We shall see them all.

o7!

We visited the binary and stopped by on a nearby planet.

The place is inhospitable to both human and machine. The scarab remained in it's bay for safety. We took the precaution of staying in the shadows as much as possible.

By contrast, this Neon ice moon was 42 degrees above absolute zero.

The celestial clock shows it to be half-past noon. Here at the bottom of the Galaxy, there may be all sorts of weird things.

Our next stop was not altogether unvisited, but they had not stopped to see the sights. That's a shame, as they were worth stopping for...

What am I looking at? Cue "Thus Spake Zarathustra"...

Okay - a bit over dramatic, but hey...

This system has a gas giant surrounded by Carbon Dioxide moons, each with 3 or 6 biologicals. Time to go for a drive!

Good morning CMDRs,

If there is one thing I have learned in the last few months it's this: turn off your lights!

The spot I had chosen to land and investigate turned out to be a sort of fertile crescent.

But hunting the dark with the lights off helps you realise how fertile it really is!

(Concha glowing in the dawn and - predictably - hiding in the valleys)

As I climb out of this deep valley towards the rising sun, I constantly pass forests containing multiple species.

The dawn provides enough light to find your way.

Sadly I do not have the time to wait until sunrise, but I'm betting it would be spectacular!

Good morning CMDRs,

Well, it was when we woke up to this!

We are at the bottom of the Galaxy below the Bubble - like @varonica where stars are few and far between. It is a well explored zone and there is very little scope for first discoveries. Nevertheless, there is still much to see.

Rolling dunes on this world make for interesting driving.

This binary system, class A and class G stars make this crater all the more interesting as does the lack of other stars in the sky! You might think that we are in a much thicker atmosphere.

Indeed so thick it is that it hides it's moon on the horizon.

On to the next stop...

BoR5pb6.png

On the way, we are keeping our eyes peeled for possible interesting mining spots.

These rings contain Titium, Grandidierite, Void Opals, Alexandrite and Bromellite. If I owned a carrier, I might bring it here. There's only a couple of overlaps though, so those pro-miners would probably go "meh!"

There is yet much to be discovered, so moving on. o7
