Equatorial Constellation Chart - Absolute Magnitudes
Normal star charts show stars' apparent brightness — how they appear in the night sky. This chart features absolute brightnesses. Each of the 655 dots plotted on this chart illustrates what the given star would look like if viewed from a standard distance of 32.6 light-years (10 parsecs). Compare this chart with SC001 to gain a new appreciation for stellar distances and how misleading brightnesses as we see them can be.
