This is an interactive visualization that maps the 100,000 stars that are closest to our sun. The visualization opens up centered on our sun, and allows the viewer to interactively explore the stars surrounding it. The stars closest to ours are named and the viewer can access this information by clicking on these names. The visualization will default to being centered on the last star that the viewer clicked. On the right hand side of the screen is a bar that allows the viewer to reference the scale at which they are currently viewing the animation. There is also an option to view the stars according to their spectral index (their temperature).
