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.
Loved it - just wish they would have identified the constellations
I was charmed by the idea of combining light and sound manifesting through the cosmos. It seemed like a beautiful and unique way to commemorate something special. I had a slight modification at the end which was graciously accommodated (thanks guys!). I loved the finished product and it was actually very moving. I would absolutely recommend this as a novel way to reach out and touch someone. I know I would love such a gift, and it doesn’t have to even be a special occasion. Just a really standout cool product.
A great idea. No two exactly alike. I enjoyed the first one (one minute, wedding date) so much I ordered a three minute (birthdate). I love them.
Absolutely love this so much can't wait to give it to my husband for our anniversary.
I ordered the 1 min version just in case but was so pleased with it that I got the 3 min version as well! I'd recommend the for all 'Star' lovers because it's almost unique to the date that you want. Exceptional value for money, lovely company to deal with, so what are you waiting for?
