Sagittarius A* – 12th Dec 3302 (Day 10)

I’ve spent a couple of weeks cooped up in my ship considering the journey ahead of me.

Space madness is real.

Of course, it didn’t help that I spent a little while away from the cockpit attempting to make some interesting clothing with some spare panel display LEDs that I found kicking around – which I must write up a post about at some point soon. That and getting to ingrossed in that pesky game I found on the ship’s computer, which appears to let you simulate a desk job in an office. I must delete that, it’s taking up valuable storage space that I could use for exploration data.

Huh, detailed surface scanners work through a star… interesting

Water based life…. on a gas giant… with an 80% hydrogen atmosphere…

Not only do brown dwarfs appear to pretend to be planets, apparently that class L hiding in the middle wants to as well…

Around Kyloarph JN-S d4-6126, I also heard a strange sound when I was in supercruise, which can only be described as Thargoids.

At least, either Thargoids or space madness…

And it must be space madness, because no being in their right mind would put seven stars in one system…

…although this is a very pretty blue star…

Must be space madness.

There’s no other explanation.

Alas, I must stop for the night, for I grow weary – not that much sleep is possible due to the brightness of the skies. I’m going to have to get a sleep mask or something when I get closer to the galactic core.

I’ve parked up in a system which no less than three class B stars, just for the sheer beauty aspect. It’s a shame they’re not really close together, or it’d make an amazing photo opportunity. Only 16 jumps to go until the next waypoint though!
