The planet:






The Terra Hunter of the Milky Way!

(By the way, I was born in 2001, NOT 1972 XD)

New Aphrodite.




Tips for finding Earth-Like planets: Look for F, G, or K Class stars. M class habitables will almost always be tidelocked. Oceanias can, of course, also be habitable, they just have tiny amounts of land.

Clauditis (Lock in latin, referring to the fact it's tidally locked. Plus the name sounds like cloud... which this planet seems to have a lot of)




Along with fezes and bowties, brown dwarves are cool.

That's why I said "Hurcanus" for that huge hurricane.

I landed into it, and no major storm on the surface. If anybody can tell me how to make an weather probe that can gather data on the storm, and even on the pitch-black night side, please tell me.

Space Engine doesn't exactly simulate weather, though this is an intended feature in future versions. For now it just does cloud layers. That is certainly a cyclonic storm though -- warm, tidally locked terras are thought to possess such storms at their sub-solar points.

At any rate, of the names provided thus far, I most like Mirai.
Of proposed names, I'd offer Meirgànradh,
from the Gaelic words for "rust" (for the atmosphere color) and "storm/tempest/hardship" (for the weather and overall appearance).

Btw, I say that the cyclone is a vortex of clouds that faces upwards, however, the atmosphere keeps the clouds from escaping the atmosphere, resulting in a relatively calm area in general beneath the clouds. Also, How do I look at its nightside?

Increase the Ambient light level to its max. Then you'll be able to see the night side. I use it to see planets that directly orbit black holes (there actually are some of those). Since the black hole's Hawking radiation is far too weak to see with the naked eye, the planet will appear pitch black, unless you have Ambient light set to a non-zero value.

I did that, and I found small bodies of liquid water surrounded by the expected solid Ice. With the traces of life, I can easily say my homeworld (Now officially Mirai) has intelligence.

Even though the planet name is mirai, I will incorporate the other names for land masses and bodies of water!

Oh, by the way-

1. Can we have the planet's randomplanet code?

2. May I add it to my "Find a New Home" Planet listing if so?
