Horizons Planet showcase - post your most beautiful shots that you are really proud of

When you send your fleet carrier to a Neutron star, it parks it .01 light second away. So far I've not been swept up into the cone of death when in supercruise heading to my carrier. But DAMN, that's close! You're inside the circumference of the cone's base.

.01LS = 1,862.82 miles = 2,997.92 Kilometers

<it seems my hotel internet is to buggy to upload pictures. I'll edit them in later>
<looks like my issue was they were .png files and not .jpg. So file size maybe?>

That's bloody cool.
Although I don't think I'd risk this, personally, even if I did have a carrier and money to burn. :LOL:
 
What is the purpose of Planet showcase. I see a lot of Fantastic pictures but Elite Dangerous Forums doesn't do anything with them. What up ?
Are you Shy or Ashame to show are Work of Art to others?
And if you are displaying them, Where is it?

Not sure I fully understand the question but if you're referring indirectly to Frontier's #StellarScreenshots thing (and why we aren't simply using that) then I should point out that this community created forum thread (and indeed the other "Screenie(s)" forum thread which Frontier have since rebranded) both existed LONG before Frontier came up with their #StellarScreenshots concept. The "point" of this thread (if there is one) was simply to share beautiful screenshots of planets with other forum users. I think this forum thread was originally started after Horizons came out and sat alongside the other thread as a place to focus specifically on planet surfaces.
 
I present to you, Arentio and Arentia, first discovered twin Earth-like worlds orbiting each other. Named after the Lusitanian divine twins.

Side note, I think my Clipper could use a fresh coat of paint.

Ok what am I doing wrong here? I try to post the picture directly and it says it’s running into problems, what are they? Don’t know, won’t tell me. I try to attach files and it seems to work, but then they don’t show up.

Certainly too heavy.

1 MB maximum. Reduce the size.
