This system was visited for the first time on EDSM by Otis B. Driftwood.
It was named by the Galactic Mapping Project with the name of: NGC 6357
415 ships passed through Cl Pismis 2 space, including 4 ships in the last 7 days.

Also known as the Lobster Nebula, NGC 6357 is a highly distinctive nebula situated on the near edge of the Norma arm. Due to its prominence, NGC 6357 acts as a navigational marker for explorers heading to the galactic core regions.
The nebula contains open cluster Pismis 24, which contains a score of huge class O stars. CL Pismis 24 1, once believed to be a single star of over 300 stellar masses, was later found to be a binary pair of O class stars (Pismis 24-1NE and Pismis 24-1SW), both of which are still among the most massive main sequence stars known.
