Here is some information about the stars featured in the video:
Alpha Centauri: the brightest star in the southern constellation Centaurus and the third brightest star in the night sky. It is also the closest star to our Sun.
Sirius: although it was thought that it is one star, is actually a binary star system. It is about 8.6 light-years away from our planet.
Arcturus: visual magnitude a'0.04, making it the brightest star north of the equator, and the fourth brightest star in the night sky.
Vega: has been extensively studied by astronomers, leading it to be termed "arguably the next most important star in the sky after the Sun" by The Astrophysical Journal.
Polaris: also known as the North Star, it is the 45th brightest star in the night sky.
We knew we took a lot of things for granted. Now we have a newfound appreciation for our Sun and astronomy has as a whole. This really things from a different angle.
