Neuzd and some others said:
14:32, Neuzd whispers: CAST VENUS:medium size, solid, thick atmosphere. Very pale light brown, almost whitish in appearance. No moons.
14:34, Neuzd whispers: CAST VENUS: preliminary survey revealed an orange colored surface/sky, lots of rocky formations and volcanoes.
14:35, Raptorjedi> CAST VENUS: OH GOD HOT
14:35, 4616599 whispers: You know, we should have a thread like that in Noctis discussions
14:35, Neuzd whispers: CAST VENUS: Interestingly, the planet has a retrograde rotation respect most of the other major objects in the system. Extreme pressure and high temperatures.
14:36, 4616599 whispers: CAST VENUS: Relatively cool compared to that S11 I was just at
14:37, Raptorjedi> It also rotates the other way (:3=)
14:37, Neuzd> I CASTED it. Don't put double entries in the guide!
Saw this in chat, and well,
the aim of this thread is to post CAST entries about real-world space objects(preferably while still remaining marginally in character!)

CAST JUPITER: Gas giant, multiple bands. Could see complexity, plus 4 very distinct moons during approach. Exploration will commence soon. Planet actually looks pretty...like the canned hoppernip they would sell on Suricrasia, but with more curls. Some clear storms, including one very well defined orangey-reddish one, but the trademark of this planet must be its multiple bands: intricate, marble-like structures, alternating orange-white bands and ribbons. Tenous ring also detected(but nothing much to look at).Surface exploration of its many major moons to commence soon; Looking forward to it! GENERIC EXPLORER ????,???.???.???

I went big directly : P

CAST SOL: S00 with 13 planets and at least 173 moons.
Of the 13 major objects only one (P3) seems to be Felisian, though some of the minor objects display unexpected temperatures and their atmospheric composition suggests that they could contain large quantities of liquid water if not even supporting life; particularly moon 6 of planet 6 and moon 6 of planet 7.
There are 4 Large, Not Consistent bodies, in the system, with the 2 farthest from the star being probably composed mostly of ice.
The 4 gas giants also account for 164 of the 173 moons labeled until now in the system.
About moons it is also interesting to notice that the 10th major object seems to be more of a "double planet", with the rotation axis not lying within the major body, but between it and its first moon. (notes by me, 60XX:832.349)

- - - - - - - - - - - - -
For "clarity" (: P), this is the structure of the system, with the number of moons, so you can have fun trying to make some sense of the references: I intentionally screwed up with "our" numbering sequence.

S00 *
01. Rocky, creased (0)
02. Thick atmosphere (0)
03. Felisian (1)
04. Thin atmosphere (2)
05. Rocky, creased (0)
06. Large, not consistent (63)
07. Large, not consistent (61)
08. Large, not consistent/Icy surface (13)
09. Large, not consistent/Icy surface (27)
10. Icy surface (3)
11. Icy surface (2)
12. Icy surface (1)
13. Icy surface (0)

[EDIT...again]
That was stupid (for who saw it...), I made it properly readable, now.

"A real world object!" (I take it 'world' in this case does not mean world )

It's a vast oversight that the Stardrifter is unable to detect asteroid belts. Didn't something on the third planet detect an asteroid with ice on it recently? And we're stuck not even knowing where it is.
