Thor's Eye is the name given to this system containing a massive O-class star and a black hole. Some cartographers consider it to have been misnamed - the Norse God who lost an eye was Odin (not Thor).
Thor's Eye is a common waypoint for travelers heading to the Lagoon Nebula, which is just 250 Ly toward galactic north. Thor's Eye is situated in the middle of open cluster NGC 6530, composed mainly of class-A and class-B stars and various stellar remnants (neutron stars and black holes). A blue-white supergiant can also be found nearby (HD 164865). (Source)
#3 - Traikaae KT-P d6-10 (Cinnabar Moth Nebula)
Cinnabar Moth Nebula - A red and black Nebula resembling a moth or butterfly from certain angles.
#4 - Trifid Sector DH-K a9-6 (Trifid Nebula)
The Trifid Nebula - Situated approx. 5,000 LYs from Sol, just beyond the more prominent Lagoon Nebula, this object is an unusual combination of an open cluster of stars; an emission nebula (the lower, red portion), a reflection nebula (the upper, blue portion) and a dark nebula (the apparent 'gaps' within the emission nebula that cause the trifurcated appearance; these are also designated Barnard 85)
Initially discovered by Charles Messier on June 5, 1764: Its name means "three-lobe." The nearest outpost, Observation Post Epsilon, is located a mere 20 LY away on Trifid Sector IR-W d1-52.
#5 - Omega Sector PD-S b4-0 (Omega Nebula)
Omega Nebula - The Omega Nebula is a blue, red and purple nebula located in the constellation Sagittarius at a distance of app. 5.500 LY from Earth. It is a low-density cloud of partially ionized gas which spans some 15 light-years in diameter and has a mass of an estimated 800 solar masses.
The nebula was discovered by Philippe Loys de Chéseaux in 1745 and Charles Messier catalogued it in 1764. But the name of the nebula was added somewhat later. The first attempt to accurately draw the nebula (as part of a series of sketches of nebulae) was made by John Herschel in 1833, and published in 1836. He described the nebula as such: "The figure of this nebula is nearly that of a Greek capital omega, Ω, somewhat distorted, and very unequally bright."
#6 - Eagle Sector EL-Y d203 (Eagle Nebula)
Eagle Nebula - Small-medium sized nebula situated within the Sagittarius arm, approx. 7,000 LYs from Sol. The Eagle Nebula contains scores of tightly packed young F5 class stars, making it a hotbed of scientific research for short-range exploration vessels.
#7 - Nyeajaae VU-Y a27-9
Mjolnir's Wrath Megaship
Nyeajaae VU-Y a27-9
#8 - Nyeajaae DA-Z a27-2
#9 - Nyeajaae IT-M c9-19 (Viridian Dreams)
Viridian Dreams - Glowing Green Gas Giant
#10 - Nyeajaae NB-Q b52-14
CB-25 Colonia Bridge Megaship
#11 - Lysoovsky BH-L d8-26 (The Green Pentagon)
The Green Pentagon - Glowing Green Gas Giant
#12 - Flyiedgai UL-C d13-41 (Flyiedgai Nebula)
Flyiedgai Nebula - Medium sized pink and red nebula situated within the central Norma Arm, approx. 11,200 LYs from Sol.
#13 - Prua Phoe TK-M d8-361 (Octopus Nebula)
Octopus Nebula - This Red and White nebula is best characterized by its tendril like hydrogen clouds, which wrap themselves like tentacles around a large white core. It's location between Colonia and The Bubble makes for a great roadside pit stop as the main sequence stars here are plentiful.
#14 - Blo Aescs QL-C b1-2 (Sugar Plum Nebula)
Sugar Plum Nebula - A typical, though slightly smaller than average, purple nebula.
#15 - Blaa Hypa YZ-N d7-421 (Siegfried's Pyre)
Siegfried's Pyre Nebula - This nebula is home to only two neutron stars, once massive bright stars that went supernova, and shares the fiery colours of most of the cluster, inspiring the name: in Wagner's Ring Cycle, Brunhilde threw herself onto Siegfried's funeral pyre. This nebula is smaller than its neighbours and closer to the Galactic Plane (45 Ly x 45 Ly x 40 Ly, 355LY below) and many other nebulae in the Conflux can be seen from its borders.
#16 - Blau Aescs OO-H d10-842 (Persimmon Nebula)
Persimmon Nebula - This medium sized red nebula is located 1300 Ly above the Pomegranate Nebula. The nebula is populated with main-sequence stars from class M to class B, and is noticeably devoid of neutron stars and white dwarf stars. The lack of stellar remnants suggests this is a newly collapsed gas cloud.
#17 - Greae Hypa GO-R b18-1 (Dr. Kay's Soul)
This vast nebula lies 1230LY below the Galactic Plane and is home to many neutron stars and white dwarfs. Its flaming orange colours and the remains of many once-great stars that inspire its name nevertheless provide stunning scenery; sometimes eerie and dark and sometimes bright and blazing.
Original GMP designation was the 'House of Hades' Nebula.
On October 29th 3307 Frontier Developments renamed the nebula to 'Dr. Kay's Soul' in honour of Dr. Kay Ross.
