REGION: GREAT WILDLANDS
I did a little bit of ratting before heading back to SL-YBS, ratting along the way. My #tweetfleet friend, @EVE_Rhavas, suggested I go back there and check out planet 1 for one of the best views in the galaxy. So I thought I better do what he suggested, since that's the kind of thing I'm travelling around and documenting!
Silly me! I completely forgot that this system was one of the 'shattered planets' that I talked about here. How exciting! So naturally I took a few photos...
So after doing a bit of ratting around some asteroid belts, I headed back to L1S-G1 to do some more ratting before moving on to further uncharted areas.
Interestingly, I found this fighter ship or frigate, of a design that I'd never seen before. Have any of you seen this? Can you tell me something about it?
For some reason I had a safe spot in this system. I thought I'd never been here before, but after checking the map I saw it was only 3 jumps from Molden Heath, my old stomping grounds from some time ago. I realised that I must have been down this way sometime while wandering around being a pirate. Gee, that would have been maybe 3 or 4 years ago. Ah, memories....
What a pretty photo this is.
Bored by this system. Can you tell by the photo.
I'd received a tip from Kaisi13 to watch out for this system, because there were lots of warp bubbles and gate camps. I'm not afraid of such things, but I was thankful for the tip so I could be careful, but I was hoping to take photos of some bubbles or camps. When I got here, however, it was completely empty of people and bubbles. So I took a photo of the gate to Egbinger instead.
I thought about jumping into Molden Heath, but changed my mind - I'll be in there soon enough as I travel through the regions. So I headed back along my route to continue on.
Another boring system, but I quite enjoyed how this gate looked against the backdrop of the nearby planet...
I know I've been here twice before now, but I decided to have another look at the shattered planet, and wow! I found something that I hadn't seen mentioned before.
The debris around the planet seemed to have actually been orbiting it. This stuff was moving! While I was there watching, the debris was slowly moving away from me. I tried MWD'ing after it, but it was actually faster than my measly ~1000m/s. I decided to take a few photos from the same angle to show how they moved over a reasonably short period of time.
I decloaked for the photos only when I was alone in the system, and stayed cloaked while waiting for the debris to move on.
I'm a bit amazed that I've been to this system three times now and found something awesome each time.
I looked for some battleship rats to kill, but couldn't find any by themselves - if there were any in this system, they all flew in pairs. I didn't want to risk doing anything stupid, so I went to bed instead.
It's been quite an interesting day. See you next time!
