The Stone Soup Novelist

I have a great idea for a novel. You know what would make it even better?…

Where in the galaxy is a good place to have an adventure?

In the story I’m writing, there are 2 planets, neither of them Earth, and a round trip between them takes about 5 years. Spaceships don’t have warp drives, just constant acceleration. Where in the Milky Way is a plausible location for my story? Or where else in our galaxy would you want to visit? What do you think the  night sky would be like there?

    How about somewhere is Ursa Major. The North Star would not be the North Star and the Characters would be looking back towards Earth. Our Sun being in a constellation created by inhabitants of that planet.. Now our sun is not a very large star nor is it very bright compared to others so it probably would be faint to one standing on another planet out that far.

      Ursa Major. Sounds like a great neighborhood!
