I just found a good one! Here it is:



Yep, It looks like just a normal, ordinary scorched desert doesn't it? well, NOPE!

This planet is like a scorched version of Venus (at 800 K), orbiting a binary red giant/white dwarf:


So I went, you know, as usual, a little orbitin' here and there:


Then, I broke through the thick cloud layer, expecting the surface below, but then...what??? Another layer?!?! :O


So I break through the layer, and wait..what?! Yet another layer?!


I finally make it to the surface


So yep, this planet is covered in not one, not two, but THREE thick layers! That's right folks, a scorched desert with THREE (3) Layers of thick clouds! I have never seen this in SE in all my hours of exploring!

...And it looks really interesting with atmosphere turned off (CTRL+A):

I've found a system I think the engine has broken.

RS 8409-1357-9-57643189-53 (Henceforth referred to as η' Car)

I attempted to find the closest star system to η Carinae so I could see the relative brightness of the parent star and η from a planet in this system near η. The given image is that star system: A binary M1V-M4V system. η'A and η'B have 9 and 3 planets respectively, and there are 2 more in circumbinary orbit. This screenshot was taken from η'AB 2, a frozen ice giant orbiting ~472 AU away (orbital period 13973.6a). At η'AB 2, η'A appears faint at -9.12 and η'B fainter at -7.6, for a total brightness of about -9.36. η Car, just below and to the left of the parent dwarves , is much brighter at -12.24.

The odd thing is that all 8 ice/gas giants in this system have life, and nothing else in this system does. All of this life is organic multicellular floaters, despite the fact that most of these bodies are inhospitable for organic life (4 are "frozen" class, with 3 at the minimum temperature of 20K).

Systems like that aren't very rare(with only floater life) if you look near the galactic center.(well, that is my experience)

Pretty big star, don't you think? And it's not even a giant.

That's a catalog error, it's a known issue. Also, you can take screenshots by pressing F11, and screenshots with the HUD by pressing Ctrl-F11.

Probably a bug, but here's a (catalog) gas giant orbiting well inside of its parent star. I was looking for scorched planets on the very edge of red/orange giants, but this really takes the cake!



Unfortunately the planet itself appears pitch black - I was hoping to see it lit from all directions.

So this is not my pictures. I found them on reddit, upploaded by a guy named NewHorizonsIV. Basically it has extremely big spire like mountains. he made his own pictures with some text. http://imgur.com/a/T48yt i doubt this would be possible. BTW how can i create a good forum gift or avatar? Every picture or gif i download, or even make myself simply are to big. And if i size them down, with paint ti still wont work, or they simply break.

I guess this could be rare? I found what looked like 2 Binary Systems orbiting a baycenter... but it turns out one of pairs actually is a Black hole and star not a Binary system

It's because the main star is scorching it making it yellow
