100,000 Stars

100,000 Stars is an interactive visualization of the stellar neighborhood. It shows the real location of over 100,000 nearby stars. Zooming in reveals 87 major named stars and our solar system. The galaxy view is an artist's rendition.

Click on the button in the upper left corner for a tour. 100,000 Stars was created for the Google Chrome web browser but it works in my Firefox browser too. Doesn't work in Internet Explorer.
