Notice: This POI shares the same star system with a prior existing entry in the Galactic Mapping Project (GMP). You can visit the original entry using the link below:

    Hollow Veil (nebula), Blae Hypue VL-H b26-0


The Blaa Hypai AA-A h68 nebula, nicknamed the Hollow Veil nebula, is located on the Western end of the Norma Expanse region, rather close to the Sol - Sagittarius A* line. It's mostly notable for the Guardian ruins that have been found in the vicinity: see this entry for more information on them.

However, there is more to be found here: Bell Molluscs can be found in Notable Stellar Phenomena, Bark Mounds that are associated with nebulae, and the Brain Trees that are associated with the ruins.

As such, this nebula is a good waypoint for any explorers heading to Sagittarius A*: with only a short detour, they can see not only Guardian ruins down on planets, but also some unique creatures (the Bell Molluscs) up in space.
