My son found this totally unlikely planet: HIP 12450 3.

It has three moons in an extremely low orbit, two of which periodically crash. But they give some nice scenery. smile

Oh god... the gap between two of those moons must be only a few km... simply amazing




I will be inactive on this forum for the time being. Might come back eventually

Wow, I've seen some extremely close moons with tiny planets, but that really takes the cake.




I occasionally stream at http://www.twitch.tv/magistermystax. Sometimes SE, sometimes other games.

I found a galaxy with a boat load of nebula near the center.



It's NGC 3953.

This is not very uncommon.

Yes. It's pretty interesting to wait for the moons to line up, then fly between them and as you get through the planet rise and fill up the entire view.

One limitation of SE becomes apparent if you sit on the surface of one moon and wait for the other to touch. The other moon (the one you're not locked to) is shaking. Likely a precision issue in the orbit calculations. (But let's say it's seismic activity due to the tidal stress smile )

I went there and didn't see any shaking, apart from when my camera got squashed between them.

Perhaps you need to slow time down to 0.001x or something. I think I had it to the minimum.

A blue main sequence star inside a red giant
Took pictures from different angles




I accidentally below the surface, and could clearly see the second star.

That's awesome!

I figure conditions like that in real life would have triggered a supernova eons ago, when the Red Giant first engulfed the blue star...

I dont know if these are rare, but since this is the first planet i have seen with a really thick atmosphere, i decided to post it here.

I found a Red Giant with a Blue star right up next to it. I mean its not inside or anything but within a few AU of it.

This is pretty normal actually. If I recall right, stellar bifurcation on catalog systems can cause it. Systems like this also exist in real life. smile

Does this mean there could be Thorne-Zytkow objects in Space Engine?




Careful. The PLATT Collective has spurs.

Cool idea! I won't use the usual copypaste 'everything known in astronomy WILL exist in Space Engine' response because these things are astrophysically really interesting and I'd never heard of them before. smile I guess you saw this announcement last month?
