I haven't seen anyone else post this yet, but there's a massive blue nova in Anoikis- I didn't realize what it was last night, but today I dipped in again and saw this.

I think we're seeing Thera and the glow of whatever caused this 'Epicenter Event' to happen.

EDIT: Oops, but whatever- 'It's a cataclysmic variable' P

What you are seeing is Ezwal's head exploding from winning the world whack-a-mole Rhea thread lockage championship.

It was tough there for a bit, Barsterlode was as solid contender, but he walked away with the silver and a gift certificate to Bed Bath and Beyond.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

Yes, it actually looks similar to the "Cataclysmic Variable".
I just looked at a recent Dev Blog concerning wormholes, and compared CCP's pic to the original one. They look pretty similar.

Yep, that's a Cataclysmic Variable.

And while I might go cataclysmic at various times, that is not a picture of my head.....Shocked

Yes the third star is perfectly normal. The Cataclysmic Variable visual effect is composed of a very bright ball above this blue EMP nova thingie that you just took for Thera's supernova.

Contrary to every other system-wide wormhole-space anomaly, this one is composed of two distinct visual entities.

I don't think so... Did you know it was a Cataclysmic Variable? Pirate

(Edited my message above to show that it was not to answer to the first post, but to answer OP's question about the third star)

I live in w-space. I just wanted people to know that it was, in fact, a cataclysmic variable.

Lies. You live in F-space, and should be focused on non-variable Cataclysmic UI Change threads.

Back in my day a cataclysmic variable was a 2 digit year in a computer program.
