Commander’s Log: 3303-01-23, NGC 6188 Sector LC-V c2-28, 4,402 light years from Sol.
Cat’s Paw Nebula! I made it, and it would have been worth the trip for the views alone, let alone for the discoveries along the way. So close to home too – I’m almost back to civilisation now, and will likely arrive tomorrow. Still for now, I have the views.
There’s something about nebulae, that I can’t help but be drawn to. They show me some of the beauty of the galaxy, and what we can find when we put our minds to it. It’s almost a shame that I’ll be going back to the mundanity of The Bubble.
I did get to see a lovely ringed water world too. Lots to see in this area, and another nebula not far away, in NGC 6188. Wonderful, and a good few credits for the old bank balance.
