Astrological Sign: Virgo
Within the Virgo constellation lies a few interesting stars. Let’s look at Alpha Virginis, also known as Spica, a blue giant and the brightest star in its constellation. It orbits another star making it a binary star system. Neat! It is also quite hot, roughly 25,000°C at its surface. Compare that to our own sun at only 5500°C. It sits about 250 light-years away from us. What is a light-year you ask? 9,460,000,000,000 km (9.46 trillion), or the distance light travels within a year. For a bit of a scale Pluto is 5,300,000,000 km (5.3 billion) away. Space is big.
Did you know that the Milky Way and other local galaxies are part of a larger group known as the Virgo Supercluster? Home to over 45,000 other galaxies. Wow! With your new knowledge on astronomy why not pick up a bottle of Puy de Dome and go star-gazing? Wonderfully aromatic cherry and soft tannins make this light bodied red an ideal pairing. We might not be able to travel to the stars yet, but we can bring you a bit of France in a glass.Read more about Fernando
