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.
I bought this for my partner for Valentines.. so not given it to him yet. But I can't wait. It's a beautiful & personal gift for him. He'll love it. Thank you.
Beautiful,the recipients loved them.
I thought I'd get one of these done for our 8th wedding anniversary and give it to my wife as a little gift. She was delighted! It's a beautiful permanent reminder of our special day.
this is something very different ,bought this for gift, the person i bought it for loved it.
Just gave this to my 1 year old grandson as part of his birthday gift...and eveyone loved it. It was a lovely thought that these were the actual stars in the sky at the time he was born . The music is a great idea too, in conjunction with the stars "brightness" and I understand there mihht be an instrument choice coming soon...even better... woikd LOVE this with a arp or something softer in sound. Overall, this is a fantastic idea. Congratulations. I will definarely be buying more..and maybe putting them into those frames to play photos as gifts. Very personal, very beautiful, very ( presumably) almost ibdividual to the recipient. Thanks. Very glad I found you.
