Where Stars Are Born

Did you know that the stars and the constellations we hold so near and dear are sometimes changing right before our eyes?

Did you know that when you look up at the dark, starry cosmos, you could almost consider yourself a time traveler?

Did you know that there are life making elements out there in space, even the same elements within us, that die and create new life?

Introducing the transcription of my live planetarium show, Where Stars Are Born!

This will be a 10+ part series, based on nebulas, star formations, constellation identification, and lots of other amazing astronomical facts – I don’t know the exact number of transcriptions it’ll take to cover my entire show as I talk about a lot of nebulas thanks to having downloaded free full dome videos at Space Telescope of Hubble

The source of inspiration of writing up my live planetarium show was inspired by my Grandma. Knowing she reads up on me, checking in on my work, this is my way of bringing my show to her. I dearly hope you all enjoy!

Now, the best part, allowing you to see the video in which I use! It should be mentioned foremost, my production wouldn’t have been possible without the free downloadable content made available by ESA and Hubble.


I’ve always been a firm believer in keeping it short and sweet, so we’ll get a little more in depth with how nebulas actually come to be and the various different types of nebulas there are going forward. For now, when you look up at Cassiopeia, just imagine this glorious blue bubble of gases, surrounding around a star that’s over forty times larger than our own!

Next episode: the Cassiopeia A Nebula

  1. This is great! The Orion Nebula (Messier 42), another stellar nursery, hidden in plain sight, is one of my favorite naked-eye things in the sky. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series! I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.
