Smojue QB-O b51-0 C 2 a at coordinates {70.223839 / -89.098030 }

--Parked on planet at coordinates {35.345921 / -98.020271 } 10:07:45 UTC : Nighttime on this planets surface at Geological Site 2. I am heading to another Site on this moon's surface. The central planet hangs over my landing site but its visible side is in shade as well.

--Parked on Smojue QB-O b51-0 C 2 a at coordinates {70.223839 / -89.098030 } 10:22:12 UTC : Landed on Geological Site number 16; a relatively flat region showing a slightly hilly landscape.

--Supercruising: 10:43:05 UTC : The planet and the moon are not too different in size and composition and circling relatively close to each other. 10:49:57 UTC : Supplemental entry:- Smojue QB-0 B51-0 C2 does have a radius of 2.114 km and its moon ~C2A does have a 929 km radius so the ratio is roughli 2:1; the density of the moon is higher than the density of the companion planet (0.32G : 0,11 G) so this ratio is 1:3.

10:50:49 UTC : Supplemental entry:- The moon seems to contain heavier elements, probably more metals: When checking the system map, C2A, the planet, consists out of 66% rock and 33.9% metal whereas C2A, its moon, consists out of 86% rock and 13% metal. These numbers from the info tab of the system map seem a little bit peculiar.

11:00:05 UTC : Supplemental entry:- C2 should have a higher density than C2A. As a result I would guess, the entity rock includes metallic minerals as well; this would give a possible explanation for the seemingly inconsistant data given in the system map. Log ends.

BLEAE THUA and Lagrange Proto Clouds (Pt 2)

The small interacting creatures do have a snowman-like shape: a small ball placed on a slightly bigger one; the bigger part of the body does have multiple tentacles to the outside. As well there are some round features seeming to be nostrils or eyes: never the less it stays unclear so far, what it is. Log ends.

BLEAE THUA and Lagrange Proto Clouds

00:05:56 UTC : BLEAE THUA, this is the third time I am passing through this are of space: First I came along with an ASPX, then with an DBX and now I come along using my Beluga Liner. Entering SMOJUE Area of space. The view of the inner parts of the galaxy, the Milkey Way, changed: This is as astonishing as always before: to see the starfields becoming dense and denser and brighter. Due to the fact I am climbing away from the galactic plain, the features of the spiral arms and their gaps become clearly visible. Since a quater of an hour I do see the nebula, which is the temporary target of the todays leg of my chosen route.

It is clearly visible with its dark purple color before the background of the bright galactic arm.

I found a signal source labled as Remarkable Stellar Phenomenon in a distance of 45.5ls; there is a Water World placed in this system as well.

Recent system is Smojue IET-B48-0

--In region of Smojue IE-T b48-0 C 01:07:47 UTC : There is a Brown Dwarf with a Water World and two signals marked as Remarkable Stellar Phenomeneon. The first of these two signals is a Stellar Proto Cloud (Lagrange Cloud).

There are two different kinds of creatures: Plenty of crystals spread inside the cloud and smaller ones; I did see two smaller creatures so far: one was moving out of sight, the other one seems to be attracted by my ship. This one keeps close to

the ship, moves foreward and backwards sometimes touching the ships hull or interacting with its shields. When in contact with the shields there are green flashes where the creature gets in contact. If I do not move the ship at all, the creature Supplemental entry:- keeps a constant distance close to the ship above the canopee.

I tried to scan this creature with small results. The headlights are switched on, so it might be attracted by the bright light. Supplemental entry:- Both of these smaller creatures keep a distance of approximately 500m to each other. When carefully moving towards the second one, the one, which moved away, this shows the same behavior than the other one. I made some photos and videos of these creatures. The many crystals, looking like paper Christmas stars, do not have a clear radar signal and can not be selected via the contacts menu. I try to get closer for a scan - if possible.

The crystal stars are labled as Rubeus Metallic Crystals.

The Rubeus Metallic Crystals are approximately 200 to 300 meters in diameter and show no reaction at all; these are just floating at their positions inside the cloud.

Inside the second Proto Cloud /Lagrange Cloud) there are some metallic starlike structures as well. These are labled PURPUREUS Metallic Crystals.

The two clouds seem similar with the exception that in the second cloud there are no smaller creatures to be found.

Both the Proto Clouds are located close to the Brown Dwarf, which as well is circled by a Water World. placed on a slightly bigger one; the bigger part of the body does have multiple tentacles to the outside. As well there are some round features seeming to be nostrils or eyes but it stays unclear so far, what it is.

Third Landing Site GD 140 A 1 A

--Parked on GD 140 A 1 a at coordinates {19.448832 / 3.524383 } 14:09:18 UTC : I did land within range of the geological signal source 7 after finding out signal source 15 was located inside an impressing canyon close to the icy mountain peaks. The relief energy next to and inside the canyon at source 15 was too high to land such a big ship as the Beluga. I tried to land the Beluga on an even part indented in the flank of the canyon but found out it was not managable eventhough the ship was fitting inside the indent easily. 14:14:32 UTC : Supplemental entry:- The geological features at this site (number 15) consists out of gysers or similar spread over a few square miles and I will now enter the SRV to investigate.

--Parked on GD 140 A 1 a surface 15:23:55 UTC : The area is classified as a magma field with sillicates; I found Ferrum (iron), Sulfur, Chrome, Selen and Carbon, some Germanium and Polonium as well.

More Voyage and Investigation Notes

Supercruising: 14:59:03 UTC : Take off, leaving the inner moo of the second gas giant and heading for the third gas giant system to DSS the two moons and the rtinged gas giant. All sixteen bodies were object to Detailed Surface Sacans; 16 times with reaching the efficiancy target. Now moving on.

15:13:38 UTC : Moving thrugh parts of Snake Sector.

15:19:00 UTC : Moving through parts ol COL 359 Sector.

15:37:32 UTC : COL 359 Sector IM-L D8-48 A 3 - This is a Water World, which I fired 5 probes on to DSS its surface.

16:01:22 UTC : Finishing the next jump I will arrive at PRU EUQ FQ-Q B47-0 (Pru Sector)

16:53:57 UTC : PRU EUQ KH-N B49-2 3 A - Innermost moon of a ringed gas giant with multiple surface signals (geological kind). After scanning and DSS of this gas giant system I will investigate the surface.

16:55:32 UTC : The gas giant appears like Jupiter with a ring, containing some resource hot spots, e.g. Bromellite. Touch down on night side of the moon with the gas giant over its horizon.

18:59:43 UTC : On the surface of this planet I found fumaroles exhaling Sulfur-Dioxide. 19:20:13 UTC : The surface of this planet with slightly more mass than the earth reminds on a marsian landscape. The fumaroles are placed at the buttom of some mountain cliffs and in the slope areas. Directly next to it their site there is an several square km wide, very even plain, which is nice for a highspeed SRV run.

19:28:45 UTC : The main star of this system - PRU EUQ-KH-N B49-2 - is an M-class star shining orange and yellow, so the light is similar than on Mars, except this rocky planet is the closest to the mentioned sun. On its dayside there is a very intense orange light and the iron in its surface sands (Fe2O3 - rost) increases the red-orange impression. Nice place. The bottom of the sun actually touches the horizon and shades grow.

19:48:45 UTC : Plenty of Iron, some Nikel, Vanadium and a good amount of Ruthenium I did find with the minerals at this site.

21:20:54 UTC : I did race the SRV over the plain for nearly 30 km - just for fund and to measure the plain. Top speed was 40 km/h - all the SRV can do; I could hold this speed during a minute racing straight in.

Scorpius Dark Region MT-Q b5-4 2 a at coordinates {-38.398342 / 75.064644 }

Parked on Scorpius Dark Region MT-Q b5-4 2 a at coordinates {-38.398342 / 75.064644 }

14:21:00 UTC : Successful Landing at Geological Site 14: Not easy with such a huge vessel like the Beluga but I was able to make it. The terrain at the foot of some mountains elevating in all directions is rough. Entering the SRV to further investigate.

Parked on Scorpius Dark Region MT-Q b5-4 2 a surface 14:54:37 UTC : There are gysers of water (ice) at this sit; the terrain is rough but rich in materials: crystal clusters and fragments can be found at the geysers, which are closely spread over the area; sometimes there are two material sources placed in 1 loc.

--Parked on planet surface

13:30:18 UTC : Additionally I did find some Polonium and Carbon inside the area. Now I might fly through the canyon before seeking out the other signal sources.

One more site on GD 140 A 1 A surface and voyage notes

--Parked on GD 140 A 1 a surface 15:23:55 UTC : The area is classified as a magma field with sillicates; I found Ferrum (iron), Sulfur, Chrome, Selen and Carbon, some Germanium and Polonium as well.

--Supercruising: 13:00:09 UTC : Starting the second day of Distant Worlds 3305 Expedition. The next waypoint is an Asteriod Base at Omega Nebula; GalMap Ref is Omega Sector VE-Q b5-15.

13:02:06 UTC : Until the 18th of JAN 3305 this has to be reached. So I plotted a route, which is not directly leading towards waypoint 2 but instead towards another Nebula; I am aiming for Traikaae KT-P D6-5. This Nebula is located above the galactic Plain.

13:04:29 UTC : This Nebula (containing the system KT-P D6-5) is placed inside the Inner Orion Spur as well (as waypoint number 2) but aproximately 1kly away from the second DW2 waypoint.

13:14:34 UTC : After a few jumps I am reaching Lupus Dark Region Sector. The aim is not to follow the most likely routes but some alternate routes to be able to find undiscovered objects and phenomena. The ship is working fine.

13:17:32 UTC : Now travesing parts of Scorpius Dark Region Sector.

13:27:25 UTC : 3 Gas Giants, two ringed, several icy bodies, one with 40 and another one with 46 Geological Sites marked. I will further investigate these objects before jumping to the next system en route.

14:02:05 UTC : Scorpius Dark Region MT-Q B5-4 2A, the innermost moon of the second gas giant (one moon of three) shows 46 Geological Signal Sources and is placed relatively close to the gas giant's ring. I will land on this planet to investigate at least one signal source and to enjoy the view of a bright, nearly white moon next to a blue gas giant. The moon itself is moving at the rings plain so to get a good sight of the thin ring from this moon might not be possible, unfortunately.

--Above planet GD 140 A 1 a

13:41:50 UTC : I think the numbering of the geological signal sources is what it is: a simple numbering from one to 15 counting the geological sites on this moon. 13:43:45 UTC : Supplemental entry:- There are some really massive mountains of an elevation of ten kilometers and more. Compared to the size of this moon, these mountains are really tall spicking out of the surface shimmering in blue white ice under the sun light of the closest star.

Gathering Materials - Exploration

--Parked on planet at coordinates {-18.965141 / 169.401199 } 12:24:20 UTC : This moon is a relatively small body and close to its central planet as well as it star. 12:37:08 UTC : Supplemental entry:- The planet the moon is revolving around is classifyed as a terra-form candidate, so this moon gets light by a relatively close class A star and by its planet reflecting the bright star light. 12:39:11 UTC : Supplemental entry:- As a resu8lt nights are relatively short and relatively bright on this moon. The last minutes I saw the sun set and the contrasts of the landscape were high with long shadows. Now there is the last daylight on the tops of the mountains. 12:40:49 UTC : Supplemental entry:- But the valleys, plains and the canyons are dark. I will go with the SRV to collect some more materials and catalog the constituents of a geological signal 14. I might do with the other geological signal sources on this planet. 12:42:28 UTC : Supplemental entry:- The result would not only be the gathering of different materials but as well the gathering of knowledge about the codes of geological signal sources, which might be more valuable finally.
