Flying from the Earth to the star U Antliae

This video sequence takes the viewer on an imaginary journey from Earth to the red and ageing star U Antliae. Near the start we see the Moon briefly and later we pass many stars that are closer to Earth than the final goal of the journey, a rare carbon star about 900 light-years away.
