NGC 2818 is a blue and pink planetary nebula in southern Pyxis constellation. It was discovered by James Dunlop on May 28, 1826. The nebula is part of the larger star cluster known as NGC 2818A. The host star is a Wolf-Rayet star, and the system has two subdwarfs, a gas giant and two rocky planets.

When the tourism industry was deregulated in 3302 and all pilots were allowed to accept passengers, the nebula was designated as a tourism spot with the name of 'Glorious Nebula'. At almost 8500 Ly it was a destination for only very wealthy sight-seekers and scientists with large bankrolls. Despite the handsome payouts, 'Glorious Nebula' quickly earned a notorious reputation with pilots due to the difficulty in reaching the location. The nebula is 1300 Ly above the galactic plane in an area of very thin star density. Those who wish to reach it will need a ship with long range, premium FSD injections, and one or more neutron star boosts.

Pilot advice on reaching Glorious Nebula can be found here, here, and here.
