Star Viewer Update

I've added another video to the Star Viewer Map. The latest video to be added to the map is a 3D animation of Pismis 24-1.

Pismis 24-1 (also known as HDe 319718) is part of an open cluster in the nebula NGC 6357. Pismis 24-1 is the largest and more brilliant of the visible stars of this cluster and is one of the most massive stars known. The star is at least a double star, as revealed by the recent observation of camera ACS of the Hubble space telescope.
