Default Jump Shadow

The jump shadow effect is more significant than one would immediately suspect. This graphic represents a ship launching from Terra where it is right now, accelerating to 100 diameters in the direction opposite from the sun. It's presumed that a jump cannot be made through tidal force stronger than what earth's is at 100 earth diameters, this comes out to be for the sun about 126.9 solar radii. This actually blocks out a significant portion of the sky - Midway, Loki, Junction and Ember are all shadowed.

Note that if you used the 100 diameter rule for the Sun rather than the tidal gradient, the effect would be even more pronounced.
