3-D Starmaps:Actual Maps In some cases distance data was tweaked when different catalogs assigned inconsistent distances to objects that are actually associated. "Beacon” stars are bright stars with absolute magnitudes of zero or less. “Pre-supernova” stars are commonly believed by astronomers to be on the verge of exploding Real Soon Now (i.e., anytime from one million years from now to tomorrow). “Collider” is Gliese 710. There is a fair chance it will collide with our solar system in approximately 1.4 million years, or at least pass by close enough to initiate a deadly hail of comets. 3-D Starmaps:Actual Maps
