Day four began with a lot of travelling, continuing my journey from Jellyfish Nebula to Crab Nebula. One of my favorite spots along the way was the CYOIDAI BC-B D14-3 ABCD system, which had four nearby stars that created beautiful lighting on a nearby planet. I spent a bit of time there and took some very nice images of my Anaconda.

As I neared the Crab Nebula, I found myself in a bit of a sticky situation, unable to plot a route anywhere nearby… I eventually found myself having to take a route in a denser star grid to the right (looking from Sol), then approaching from the rear. I also ended up getting stuck, then had to shut down my fuel scoop and jump with a relatively low fuel load just to get myself back on-track… My waypoint system to reach it was Crab Sector UP-0 B6-0, and you can plot a route to the Crab Pulsar from that system.

Crab Nebula contains the Crab Pulsar, a Neutron Star that pretty much kills the lighting in the vicinity. You need to jump away a little bit to see the nebula in true color.

My experience coming into the Crab Sector made me appreciate just how much of a challenge it might be if I was to travel deeper into the black… I began to look at my SRV as more than a mere plaything, spending a little bit of time on a nearby planet getting to know how it used materials to increase jump range…
