All the dirt on your favorite stars!  Well, on those nearby stars within 75 light-years, anyway.  (Plus some of the more well-known "name brand" stars farther away.)  And even then, I skipped a heck of a lot of solitary red dwarfs for which half-decent data weren't available.  Oh, and this site should probably have a few more goodies added to it in various places.  But don't let that stop you.

Search for a star by name (e.g. Omicron(2) Eridani, or The Dog Star):

OR, search for a star by its exact catalog number (use a * to indicate a degrees sign):

OR, search for all stars within light-years of galactic coordinates:
X=, Y=, Z=
with Right Ascension between:
h m s and h m s
and with Declination between:
° ' " and ° ' "
