Parallax MovieThis movie was developed by Professor Rick Pogge at the Ohio State University Astronomy Department. http://www-astronomy.mps.ohio-state.edu/~pogge/Ast162/Movies/parallax.html
Notice that in the movie two different cases are shown, one after another. In the first, the nearby star is closer to the Earth, while in the latter, it is further away. Observe how the size of the apparent shift changes in each case.
