Is there a name for the star that we see at the end of Interstellar? While Cooper is exiting the Tesseract, we see a bright shining star. I was wondering if anyone knew more about it.
I'm not exactly sure what star you are talking about here. When Cooper exits the tesseract, he makes a short "handshake" with Amelia traveling through the wormhole in the past, and then he is put near Saturn. There is indeed a bright light on the right of Cooper fading away when Saturn comes into canvas from the left side. It is not entirely clear what light that is.
- It could just be a visual enhancement without much significance, somewhat of a lens effect put there for purely aesthetic purposes.
- It could as well be a visual artefact of the, admittedly largely unknown and mysterious, "transportation" that brought him there from the tesseract.
- Or, if any star at all, it would simply be our local star, the sun.
The only other thing you could be talking about are the two little lights that we see near Saturn right after that. However, notice that those lights have a regular distance form each other and are actually blinking. This is just the spaceship that was sent by the nearby Cooper Station to pick him up.
