We have written many articles about stars here on Universe ://

    In the heliocentric model, a nearby star should show a parallax shift with respect to more distant stars as the Earth moves in its orbit of the Sun. No shift had ever been observed. We can use the small angle equation to show how far away the stars had to be. The limit of angular observation was about 1 arcminute (1') or 60 arc seconds (60 /Copernicus-and-the-Heliocentric-Model.   This is the Matariki star cluster.
