The Stellarium

This is the Stellarium of IMAW.

It depicts the location, spectral classification, and presence of exoplanets for all stars within 50 Light Years of our Solar System.

Designed and built entirely by Mitchell A. Walker, it is the second version of this incredible visualization of our stellar neighborhood.
It will be displayed in a public science venue when it is completed. Weather permitting, I often bring the Stellarium to the Stars in the Park event on The Prado on the first Wednesday of each month. 
Illuminated by ultraviolet light, each star is colored according to it’s place in the Morgan Kenan system.

The Great Stellarium 30 inch square 3D star map Project had its first public debut at Balboa Park’s “Stars in the Park” on May 1st 2019.
I have exhibited this intriguing and interactive display at a number of places since then.
Come and see the stellar neighborhood at its proper location of 50 light years radius @ 3 inches to 10 light years in physical 3D lite up in black light.
