workin on the 3D Starmap ```n ok ...not for nothin, but... connecting lines between stars as in a constellation otherwise, the very local / very bright stars Sirius, Altair, and Vega are about 9, 18 n 27 light years away respectively... for one thing... so: 1a, 2a and 3a if we say a = 9 but, also… now the line between Altair and Vega... they're exactly 15.00 light years apart and the connecting line between them is inclined exactly at exact degrees relative to Earth's north-south pole 360 equal wedges of a circle which is a human invention ...17.5 and 20.0... which is 7b and 8b if we say b = 2.5 ``` ```...the blue orb is Vega... or rather, the Vega system 0.2 light years in diameter or about 5% the distance from us to the nearest star Alpha Centauri ...or about same as our Oort cloud ...the cylinder connecting is 0.03 light years in diameter 2000 AU, Earth-Sun distances (pale Blue on the lower right) ...you can see inside the orb this new line touches center as closely as all the others ...right in the exact center the heart of the solar system where any planets would be... and same for the other star the Origin and Position numbers are just the average coordinates (xyz positions for the two stars) the center point between them relative to our position (0,0,0) ```

 still workin on the 3D Starmap ```and imagine my surprise when the very next day i found that Altair and Sirius are exactly 25.00 light years apart now, a light year is based on Earth's year and the line between them is interestingly inclined quite roundly to Earth's axial tilt with 1° being one of 360 wedges in a circle 68.5° and 12.5° - which together = 81 = 9x9 and all three of these stars are indeed multiples of 9 light years away from us SIRIUS is about 9 light years away ALTAIR is about 18 light years away n VEGA is about 27 light years away very higly mysteriously curious, eh? ``` ```and continuing further hey, Sirius and Vega are exactly 33.333 light years apart now, the image shown has the connecting line (amber with red dashes) touching the exact center of the main SIRIUS system but not so center at the other star VEGA so, something is slightly off... but not by much ...i'll look into it... at most it would be that extra third of a light year (which would be a pity) prolly justa tiny typo ```
