well done! you found the bonus egg. ♥

I am  Alpha Centauri a triple star system located just over 4 light years from Earth. I am the closest star system to you, other than the Sun as well as the nearest planetary system. Exciting stuff! 

Pictured in the egg are Alpha Centauri A and B, two suns that rotate around a common centre. My third star is called Alpha Centauri C or Proxima Centauri.

I am home to Proxima Centauri B, Earth’s closest Exoplanet –  a planet outside the Solar System. In humankind’s search for other life and habitable planets in the Universe you are looking to me, Alpha Centauri so I’m definitely a name you will want to remember.

Distances in space are so vast that we measure them in Light Years.. One light year is the distance a ray of light travels in one Earth year.. Travelling at the speed of light is unimaginably fast. To find out what the speed of light is hop over to  our free e-book: The Marshmallow who Invented Light Travel and subscribe to receive your free copy.
