Distance to waypoint
This red and pinkish nebula, situated in the Heart of the Sagittarri Conflux, sits around 1,000 LYs below the galactic plane.
The nebula is quite dense in places but its lower reaches become extremely diffuse.
The Vostok Nebula was named in honour of the first spaceflight of the Vostok programme and the first manned spaceflight in history. The Vostok 3KA space capsule was launched on April 12, 1961 from Baikonur Cosmodrome, Soviet Union, Earth, with Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, making him the first human to cross into outer space.

POI’s Along the Way
Emain Macha – A complete galactic anomaly – a binary pair of ringed Earth-Like Worlds (Fedach and Fomfor), orbiting a neutron star.
Dragon’s Tail Nebula – Located about 1000 Ly to the galactic west of the Dragon’s Head Nebula, this nebula is of similar size and color, making it a “tail” to the Dragon. Many white dwarf and neutron stars can be found in and near the nebula. A black hole in the reference system provides a unique view of the nebula through the optical lensing effect.
Ewoks Rest – a system containing not one, but two of the rarest sites in the galaxy: an ELW moon, and an ammonia moon.
