Make the stars sing and dance for someone you love
Create a personalized video of the stars and constellations that were visible overhead on any night with music generated by the stars themselves.Create Your Starry Night
You choose a date and location and we generate an animation showing the stars that were visible over the entire night. The video includes the stars entering during sunset, the constellations that were overhead, and the stars exiting during sunrise. If any planets or the Moon were visible on your night, they'll appear too, with the Moon in its correct phase. The video shows the entire sky, with the southern horizon along the bottom.
The music is generated by the stars themselves, by converting each star's color and brightness into a musical note. This process is called sonification. The redder stars produce lower pitched notes while the bluer stars produce higher notes. The brighter the star, the louder the note. The animation and music are created using highly accurate astronomical catalogs and our own software.
Within 24 hours of when you place an order you will receive an email with buttons that will let you watch and download the video of your starry night. If you'd like to share the video or give it as a gift, simply forward this email to someone you love so they will always remember that magical night.

My Starry Night is created by the astrophysicists and musicians of SYSTEM Sounds. We convert the rhythms and harmonies of the cosmos into music and sound and frequently collaborate with NASA to make astronomy more accessible to the blind and visually impaired. Watch our co-founder Matt Russo's TED Talk 'What Does the Universe Sound Like?' to learn more about the deep connection between music and astronomy.
Thank you for my starry night. I usually don't buy things online but after watching the Ted Talk I was intrigued. I like how every one has a different sound. I enjoyed my starry night and shared it with my boyfriend as it was the day we first met. He liked it too.
I really enjoyed it but feel it’s overpriced.
I absolutely loved it! I haven’t given it to my husband yet but I know he’ll cry! It’s just so sentimental and timeless. Great communication from seller and fast turnaround!
It's a secret for now as I have yet to forward this to my best friend for the birthday but makes perfect sense as the spouse worked for NASA and is a star up there in the sky watching over the family now. I believe in destiny and the ad for Starry nights came up on my Facebook- I was curious and on watching- stumped- it so beautiful. I chose the Mountains and Milky way theme for the 3 minute video. I had forgotten the names when I got the video and sent the team a note that I was sad that I had forgotten , for next time I would remember to add the names but, guess what ? the Team at starry night were super super nice and so co operative that they went ahead and added them for me at no extra cost. I would definitely recommend this very special service as a gift or even as a personal memory - I cried when I watched it for the first time....
Thanks you for everything I in love with your video
