"Stargazing," by Leticia Rossi







Remember when I reported about the Five College Student Film Festival, and there was one film I really liked but that wasn't available online? I sent an email to the creator, and she sent me a link. (3.22 minutes) I really love the simple images and her thoughts ...

Then, looking up at night can make us feel connected, not only with each other, but with everything that exists ... Maybe we like stargazing because it makes us reflect on our places in the universe, and suddenly our mundane problems don't feel so heavy when you look into infinity.

and also the various facts she shares--like the size of the sun relative to Aldabaran.

Here's "Stargazing," by Leticia Rossi. Enjoy!

That was awesome. The simplicity of the images complemented the many forms of sense of wonder that the narrative evoked, while being vibrant and joyful. Really excellent. Thanks so much for the link!

My pleasure! I liked her nimble mind and how effortlessly she moved from one thought to the next, and yeah, I thought the images were perfect. Especially all those galaxies :-)

I was looking for the size of Aldebaran relative to the solar system and it's dwarfed by the Garnet Star, which extends out to between the orbits of Jupiter and Saturn.

Wow--that's huge! Is that the biggest star that's known?

Nope. There's an even bigger one that goes out to between Saturn and Uranus.
