Change flight direction of particles viceversa to 180 degrees

Hello everybody,
I'm still a beginner, I have a question about After Effects, which is probably easy to answer for professionals.

I want to use a field stars for my animation. I've also gone through several tutorials, which almost use the effect "Particle World" and so far everything is ok. My problem is that all the tutorials respond to the usual available parameters. But what I have not yet found, is the possibility of the stars (or particles) not to move towards the camera, but instead to move away from the camera. I want to achieve from the perspective of the viewer to get the feeling while observing an object in the center of the image, to fly backwards.

I really searched for a long time now, but unfortunately I did not find anything, yet. This can surely not be so hard to get the particles in the opposite direction, right?

Thanks for any help!

Here's one easy way -- render it out, import it, apply time remapping, highlight the keyframes, and use the time reverse keyframes command.
