Star Cluster A51 is a star cluster located in the Deep Periphery.[1]

System Description

Star Cluster A51 is a significant astronomical feature in the coreward Deep Periphery. Located a little over 1,580 light-years from Terra, the cluster has a relatively unobstructed view of the Pentagon Worlds, despite being almost 3,214 light-years from Eden, due to the angle to the otherwise obscuring Caliban Nebula. The location of Star Cluster A51 was released by Interstellar Expeditions on charts in 3095.[1]

  • Star Cluster A51 was first identified in 2012 with the publication of Interstellar Expeditions: Interstellar Players 3. Other than the astrographical location of the cluster, no information was provided in the system; in the absence of further information on the Deep Periphery no further detail is likely to be available on Star Cluster A51.
