She felt moved, something in heart shifting, falling into a space that seemed natural, like stones loosened by a hard rain.

The Gigantic Peanut In The Sky

This is an artist’s representation of the largest yellow star ever found. It is more than 1,300 times larger than the Sun and it is rapidly getting even larger. According to the study leader, Olivier Chesneau:

The two stars are so close that they touch and the whole system resembles a gigantic peanut.

The double star’s boring official name is HR 5171, but I propose we call it The Great Sky Peanut.  Even though it is 12,000 light-years from earth, a keen sighted person could see it on a dark night, twinkling in the constellation Centaurus.

This representation was made by the European Southern Observatory (hat tip to NPR’s Geoff Brumfiel for sending it my way). You can read more about the star here.

I think that Kickstarter is a storytelling platform and through your project video, through the rewards that you offer, through the way you write about the project, and the way you build and engage your audience, it’s all an opportunity to tell the story, not of the film itself, but really the making of that film, who you are as an artist, where you are in the process of making something, and really inviting people to be a part of it.
