It’s been a few days since Sagittarius A* and I made it to The Great Annihilator along with CMDR Bikky and CMDR Ian Norton. It may not be the biggest black hole in the galaxy but it’s far more spectacular than Sgr A*. Must be something to do with having 2 black holes but the gravitational lensing is really something.
We hung around for an hour or so, daring each other to go closer and closer to the A and B stars and taking photos and then bid our farewells, the last time any of us will see another human for at least a couple of weeks.
I wasn’t really sure what to do after that so I just headed upwards to see how far I could get. Pretty far as it turns out. I made it to 2722ly above the galactic plain before I ran out of stars in jump range. Up here, there’s just blackness above me and the light of the Milky Way’s 400 billion stars below. I must be one of the highest humans alive at the moment and the views are spectacular. I’ll leave you with some photos.
Fly safe commanders.
