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:

    G2 Dust Cloud (nebula), G2 Dust Cloud Sector JH-V c2-2851


The G2 Dust Cloud is the remnant of an event observed in the 21st century, during which what was then suspected to be a gas cloud encountered Sagittarius A*. Since the event actually happened 26,000 years ago, by today the cloud has travelled quite a distance away from the centre. Explorers who visit it will find that it resembles a small and faint nebula, which can be observed by the naked eye only from within 80 ly. However, from up close, the cloud colours the bright light of the galactic core crimson red, which can make for some unique sights.

Great meeting point for events and photographs. Also, historically relevant to the visual history of the Galaxy.
