What would happen if someone were to place a Portable Hole within a Bag of Holding while being within the Astral Plane? Would it be the reverse effect?

    \$\begingroup\$ I would question whether you could even take a portable hole to the Astral Plane. Any means I can think of to get it there would also be in danger of creating an extra-dimensional rift (or just not working). \$\endgroup\$ – RBarryYoung Aug 1 '16 at 16:38

According to the description it would still create a gate to a random location on the Astral Plane.

Placing a portable hole inside an extradimensional space created by a bag of holding [...] instantly destroys both items and opens a gate to the Astral Plane. The gate originates where the one item was placed inside the other. Any creature within 10 feet of the gate is sucked through it to a random location on the Astral Plane. The gate then closes. The gate is one-way only and can't be reopened.

It would be a Gate from one location in the Astral Plane to another.
