Extra-Planetary Anomaly - Comet Dawnstar

This very lucrative anomaly can be found near the center of the system - scan and probe to find Comet Dawnstar, on which is a lucrative Platinum Deposit.


Scan this ringed planet, which at a glance appears hospitable due to its liquid water. Sadly, that’s not the case, but you can find a massive Biomatter Growth anomaly on the surface, which can be scanned for some XP.

Faroang is home to the Comet Dawnstar, from which Platinum can be extracted (left). On Yilfaen you'll find Graphite (right).


The sole draw of this lifeless planet is a Graphite Deposit on the surface… which is odd, considering the planet description says that Iron is one of its primary components. Oh well.
