After leaving Veil West Nebula behind me (spectacular, by the way), I set off towards NGC 6820… Unfortunately, fate had different ideas on how this trip was going to go and while trying to land on a planet for a simple picture of what looked to be a nice view – I crashed. After transportation all the way back to Sol, a large insurance payout and treatment for a few cuts and bruises, I set out again on a speed-run directly to Waypoint 2 and the NGC 6820 Nebula.

The speed-run to the Nebula was uneventful, and I got some nice gallery images along the way…

My arrival at the Waypoint was clean, and I met up with a few other commanders on-site at the European time slot. Unfortunately the lighting really wasn’t that great at the waypoint, so I decided to stick around and wait until the next day to leave, hoping for better light.

The next day certainly delivered! With the waypoint now in the shadow of the planet, the beautiful ambient light of the NGC 6820 Nebula changed the grey planetoid I had been on into a stunning red and pink wonderland…
