Shining Light on the Stars

FullDome Film Short: Shining Light on the Stars

It begins with an in-depth look at the brightest stars we see from Earth, and then it takes the viewer on a fly-through of the exact locations of the closest stars to the Sun - using the HR diagram along the way.

Target Audience: Grades 9 and up
