Elite Journal: California Nebula (April Exploration Day 1)
After my recovery from Barnard’s Loop, I got a good nights sleep in Jameson Memorial and set off into the black once again the following day, after I’d got my affairs in order (and paid my insurance); I decided to head straight for the California Nebula… Things didn’t start perfectly, I had forgotten to refuel, but quickly managed to fill my tanks during the short journey of just over 1000LY.
California Nebula is certainly a very pretty place to visit, with a mostly-red coloration that looks very nice, once you get far enough away from the star of any jump-in system you visit to view it from. It’s somewhere, along with Barnard’s Loop, that I would really advise any aspiring explorer to try to visit first to test their fittings and airlocks…
As for me? I shut down all essential systems after reaching the nebula and let my ship float silent while I got another decent night of sleep. On day two I’ll be heading into the black and towards the rift!
