For thousands of years, we have looked to the stars at night in wonder and awe.
Their mysteries have inspired curiosity across all cultures and civilizations. Starlight is told through the eyes of Margaret, as she steps back in time to relive childhood fears of the dark that awoke her curiosity about the night sky.
Starlight features stunning visualizations that take audiences from Earth to the stars, through nebulae and galaxies, and on trips through the hearts of stars and supernova explosions. It also presents Christiaan Huygens’s first attempts to study starlight and introduces the concept of spectroscopy — all as part of Margaret’s personal story about exploring the sky. Join Margaret as she takes you on an out-of-this-world journey to discover constellations and ancient cultures, the birth and death of a star and the inner workings of our Sun.
