Please dev, do something about this. I've encountered about half a dozen times.

Stupid question - have you tried turning down your bloom in the video options?

I know that planet. Even with bloom off, it's very bright to the point of painful. But I have eyes that are very sensitive to light, my nightvision is excellent. And no turning down gamma isn't an option, as this one planet and one ground explore map are the only two that are overly bright.

First turn your Bloom down, that makes a huge difference. Secondly,

I've seen them as well. Just report it to Cryptic as a graphic bug. I typically put in the describe the problem box something along the lines of "AHHHHHH! MY EYES!! IT BURNS!!!" followed by a very calm explanation of, "hey, i'm flying into a sun. wasn't aware that i could explore the surface of the sun. Sweet."

I've seen this too in star clusters. I'll bug it and tell you the system if I see it again.

The planet is as bright as a star. When Postprocessing is turned Off the planet looks like Saturn.

I've seen it too in several systems. A super bright planet that looks like a gas giant yet you can somehow land on it for certain missions.

I've also had this problem a few times. It has to do with the flare settings when the Genesis program creates a planet. I know I've reported it at least twice but this is the only ticket number I've found in my vast list.

When I turned down bloom back to 100%, I haven't seen the problem again... so far.
