My Birthday Star



The Concept: Birthday Star is the star you can observe in the night sky which has emitted photons (light) approximately around the time you were born.

For example, if you were born in the year 1986, i.e. (34 years old), the light from a star that is 33 light years away will reach your eyes if you observe it tonight. The light that was emitted by the star on the day you were born that has taken 33 years to travel in space (at the speed of light) and fall on your eyes when you observe it.
