Strange sightings

So I found a hot gas giant with 225 moons. The planet is orbiting near an asteroid belt, so I suppose that's how it got all its moons. It has a ridiculous inner moon system that is quite bright and it really makes a show when viewed from its large moon—even at day!

Every single dot around the gas giant is a moon.

I appreciate the update, I'd like to let you know that you could change the orbital inclination and the ascending node of the lobe orbits around the barycenter.

Nice addon, maybe the two lobes of 2014 MU69 should be red in color and its north rotational axis should be facing toward the Sun.
Also, you put the diameter estimate of each lobe as the radius which made 2014 MU69 twice its actual size.

Procedural moon orbits around planets

In Space Engine, the procedural generation of moon orbits appear unrealistic and would be unstable in reality. Procedural planets with many dwarf moons (about over 70) may sometimes group them into an inner moon system and an irregular moon system, just as usual. Viewing the orbits of the irregular ...

COMMUNITY ADDON - Double/Multiple Asteroids fixes for SE

(229762) 2007 UK126 and its satellite both have been named, Gǃkúnǁ’hòmdímà and Gǃò’é ǃHú. Besides the fact that those names look horrid, some characters used in the names are not supported in Space Engine. The updated orbital parameters of the satellite is in http://www2.lowell.edu/users/grundy/tnbs...

The Kuiper Belt object (208996) 2003 AZ84 appears to be shaped like an ellipsoid with the dimensions 940 × 766 × 490. There's a recent paper regarding its shape: https://arxiv.org/abs/1705.10895

Probably a low-mass star, according to the mass estimates in the paper.

Good addon, at least exploring around the Milky Way doesn't feel as empty now.
