Some stars disappear when view far back or far into the future



Some stars, especially those with high proper motion, flicker or disappear when you set the year very far back or far into the future. For example, set the year to 350,000 BC, and gaze toward Capella and Aldebaran (they are neatly positioned close to each other). They both disappear when zoomed in too much, and when panning around. Selecting one of them, prevents it from disappearing. Would it be possible that stars never flicker or disappear when viewed very far back? I believe it would cause performance issues when zooming, as it seems to be a clipping issue.


This happens both in SS6 and the freshly released SS7.
