Lightyears From Earth

This project explores how while from Earth the stars in constellations appear as if they are next to each other, in reality they are sometimes hundreds of lightyears apart.

One is a visual representation of the lightyear-distances of stars from Earth in the 8 (out of 88) chosen constellations (Andromeda, Ares, Gemini, Orion, Pegasus, Sagittarius, Ursa Minor, & Ursa Major).

The second graphic is a more extensive look at the data for each constellation.
