Neighborhoods of Nearby Stars
Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
The graphic on the left shows stars near the Solar System. Use the slider to zoom in or out in that graphic.[more]
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.[less]
