First observed in 1876 by the german astronomer Ernst Wilhelm Leberecht Tempel, the Box Nebula is a planetary nebula with a bright Wolf-Rayet star as its main celestial object, two main sequence stars orbit as a binary pair from a great distance. Do to its relatively low relevance, its remoteness at around 11000 ly from Sol and its distance from the galactic plane, it was mostly ignored by the commanders in the Pilots Federation. No landable bodies are available but the unique dark and green background and the daunting trip makes this a wonderful experience for the experienced.

There is some confusion over the naming of this nebula. The Box Nebula is sometimes referred to as NGC 6445, but the NGC 6445 is located at host star CSI-20-17462. Other sources refer to the Box Nebula as NGC 6309.
