Neil deGrasse Tyson loves himself some Vincent van Gogh. Specifically his painting "Starry Night." Neil shows off his fandom of Starry Night and tells us why he loves the painting so much, including why the title "Starry Night" is so important and how van Gogh invoked emotion by painting how reality felt instead of how reality was at the time. Neil also talks about how we are able to know when and where it was actually painted. And that’s when Chuck Nice brings out his special Starry Night surprise for Neil!
