Beyond the Solar System

Humans have gazed into the night sky for thousands of years and wondered, what are those twinkling lights? Though the sun, moon and planets moved across the background of stars, the stars themselves appeared immovable, forever fixed in constellations. Only when astronomers began taking a closer look did anyone realize what a fascinating, ever-changing universe lies beyond our solar system - red giant and white dwarf stars, spiral galaxies, wispy nebulae, black holes and much more.
