Map of stars within 14 light years

Postby scottaa1 » Wed Jan 26, 2011 7:54 pm

Coworker sent me this. Pretty cool, it's a map of all the stars within 14 light years of our sun. Can zoom in/out, rotate in 3 dimensions, click on the stars to get basic info and to pull up wikipedia pages for them. May be a fun check-this-out with your kids if they have any interest in astronomy.

I can't find Scarlett Johansson's home on that map anywhere :-?
