Create a personalized video of the stars and constellations that were visible overhead on your special night. From sunset to sunrise, each star's light is translated into music, creating a unique melody as they glide across the sky.
Watch a sample video below.
HOW IT WORKS
You choose a place and time and we generate an animation showing the stars that were visible throughout the entire night. The two and a half minute video includes the stars entering during sunset, a collection of constellations that were overhead during the night, and the stars exiting during sunrise. The video shows the entire sky, with the southern horizon visible along the bottom. The stars that are directly above appear in the middle of the frame.
The music is generated by the stars themselves, by converting each star's color and brightness into a musical note. 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.
After your personalized movie is created we'll email you the video file so you can share it with someone you love, and relive that magic moment.
Please allow 2-3 business days.
Who are we?
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 Matt Russo's TED Talk 'What Does the Universe Sound Like?' to learn more about the deep connection between music and astronomy.
