Shining Light on the Stars: The Hertzsprung-Russell Diagram

Shining Light on the Stars Poster

This program thoroughly covers the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram. From the history of its creation to the practical use it has for astronomers today. 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.

This program is available for FREE to any interested planetarium.
The show's run time is 15:34, and is available in resolutions up to 4K.
