System Information
X:Y Coordinates -1,237.70 : -702.73[e]

The Cygnus Loop is a nebula located in the Deep Periphery, approximately 900 lightyears anti-spinward & rimward of the St. Andreas.[1]

System Description[edit]

The Cygnus Loop was the name given to a nebula located approximately 300 lightyears rimward of the Vul Rift, in the anti-spinward region of the Deep Periphery.[1] The provided coordinates designate the nebula's center point.


The Cygnus Loop was first identified in 2012 with the publication of Interstellar Players 3: Interstellar Expeditions. Other than the location of the astronomical feature and its definition as a nebula, no information was provided; in the absence of further information on the Deep Periphery, no further detail is likely to be available on the Cygnus Loop.
