Motion of Barnard's Star :: [quicktime movie]
"Edward Emerson Barnard discovered a star with very high proper motion, now called Barnard's Star.  Currently its position is RA 17 57 48.50, Dec + 4 41 36.24.   All stars, even our Sun are moving through space. They orbit in our galaxy but some have different speeds and directions.  A star's proper motion shows this motion in space in reference to other stars.  Barnard's star has the highest proper motions of any stars we observe. Frank Mills and Vivian Hoette have taken .fts images of Barnard's Star using the Yerkes 24 inch telescope periodically since the spring of 2000." http://sunra.lbl.gov/~vhoette/Explorations/edo/
