2c/3 orthogonal is a speed equal to two thirds of the speed of light.

Fuses

There are three known blinker fuses which travel at 2c/3, the most common of which is shown below, along with two other blinker fuses traveling at the same speed.

#C A period 18 blinker fuse which travels at 2c/3. x = 45, y = 5, rule = B3/S23 2o2bob2o$5obobo$8bob3ob3ob3ob3ob3ob3ob3ob3ob3o$5obobo$2o2bob2o! #C [[ THUMBSIZE 2 THEME 6 GRID GRIDMAJOR 0 SUPPRESS THUMBLAUNCH ]] #C [[ TRACKLOOP 18 2/3 0 GPS 6 ZOOM 20 X -15 THUMBSIZE 2 ]]

The washerwoman also burns at 2c/3.

Puffers

Although spaceships and similar patterns cannot travel any faster than c/2 orthogonal, the blinker fuses above have been used inside masses of spaceships to create slow puffer 1 and slow puffer 2, which in turn can also be turned into rakes and spaceships.
