Accidentally blew up the universe, soz #openframeworks
Okay okay, I think we got it. Sorry for any planetary orbits that may have been engulfed by their stars.
The star math, if you're interested, is roughly to multiply a star's color by its magnitude (itself on an exponential scale), then decrease brightness with a falloff of 1/(distance^3). The dot will have a solid white center (where color is boosted higher than the normalized 0-1 range) and then taper off.
I need to tweak the math to make apparent size between stars less pronounced.
