The graphic on the left shows stars near the Solar System. Use the slider to zoom in or out in that graphic.


There are two ways to select a star:

1. Select the checkbox and click in the left graphic to choose a star by its label.

2. Deselect the checkbox and select a star by its name from the pull-down menu.

In either case, the second and third graphics show the neighborhood of the star in 2D and 3D.
