Sagittarius A* – 30th Dec 3302 (Day 20)

Last night I stopped one jump short of Six Rings, at Myriesly RY-S e3-5414, to savour the sights of this system for a new day.

On arrival, I was presented with a very pretty class B blue-white star, which takes the total number of stars in this system up to 7, albeit the other six being T Tauri protostars.

After that, I continued past Waypoint 11 and onwards to Sagittarius A*.

Sagittarius A* – 29th Dec 3302 (Day 19)

Having finally fixed my flight controls to use a proper throttle and stick rather than the hacked together controls I was using connected directly to my flight computer bypassing the controls I’ve previously neglected to add to my ship during purchase.

I passed Waypoints 9 and 10, and decided to take a break one jump before my first via – Six Rings.

Sagittarius A* – 28th Dec 3302 (Day 18)

Not much to report here, other than hearing more Thargoids in Phroi Flyuae SO-T b22-60, as previously mentioned in a previous log, and I reached Waypoint 8!

Sagittarius A* – 27th Dec 3302 (Day 17)

Two galaxies in the distance?

Note to self: don’t start moving towards a star before starting opening the system map – it’s not then possible to slow down or stop before… colliding… with said star until the system map has opened.

With Waypoint 7 reached and Waypoint 8 plotted, I spotted a nearby system worth a detour to – a system reporting itself as containing a Wolf-Rayet C star.

On arrival, I found that not only was this system holding a beautifully-purple WR-C, but it was also hiding a Class O star!

Sagittarius A* – 18th Dec 3302 (Day 14)

After a minor incident where I decided to fly into a planet, today hasn’t been particularly exciting.

The only news of note to report is that I appear to have overtaken CMDR Braxton Doyle, as at the current time, the CMDR hasn’t plotted Waypoint 7 yet, so I’ve taken the initiative and plotted that now too. Whether or not he’ll follow me to my first via, I don’t know.
