The Constellation of Ursa Minor

The Constellation of Ursa Minor

Lovely 3K shot of Ursa Minor, one of the 88 constellations recognized by the International Astronomical Union. This motion graphics animation starts deep within the constellation before pulling back to reveal the entirety of Ursa Minor; including Polaris, the current northern Pole Star.

For scientific accuracy, each of the main stars in the constellation have been plotted with accurate relative distances from Earth. This would be perfect for a space documentary or educational video on astronomy and the constellations.

2880×1620, 29.97fps, 20 seconds.
