Father’s Day – Honor your dad with a gift that outshines all others
Buy a star package and Give Dad the Most Unique Gift in the Universe
Who was your first, and most important, role model? And who is the hardest person you know to buy a gift for? Who supported you and loved you as you found your way in this world? For many of us, it’s our Dad.
How do you honor a man like that? When you give a star package to your father, you are giving him a gift that says “You are the shining star in my life”. Name a star for dad and immortalize his legacy in the most unique way possible.
It’s a rare gift he won’t pick up for himself at the hardware store. When you name a star, you are giving him a gift that is as special as he is.
For thousands of years, mankind has been naming stars, mapping patterns in the sky, and recording celestial objects. From the creation of early star names and their place in ancient mythology and navigation, to multiple modern scientific catalogs, there have been dozens of different star catalogs created.
For the past century, scientists have worked with either numbered objects or objects designated by the IAU for Scientific Uniformity.
But scientists do not own the stars. You can buy a star package and name a star this Father’s Day to show your Dad that he is a bright star in your sky! Starting in 1979, International Star Registry broke with scientific tradition and began naming stars that had only been numbered in previous star catalogs. When you name a star it will be listed alphabetically with its telescopic coordinates will be permanently copyrighted in the only published listing of named stars in the world.
Because the star names are published in these hard covered volumes, designed to become family heirlooms, centuries from now your great grandchildren can locate the star you name in these books and, using the telescopic coordinates, locate the star in the sky. 9 volumes of the book Your Place in the Cosmos (Library of Congress Catalog No. 84-63015) have been published and copyrighted in the United States. Each star named is unique. The coordinates are derived from the NASA Hubble Guide Star Catalog and each star is named only once. When you name a star for a loved one, it is intended to be a beautiful, memorable gift. Astronomers do not use the names we assign to the stars.
Name a Star after Dad
With the help of International Star Registry®, you can honor you father, grandfather, favorite uncle, or anyone who deserves to be remembered on this day. Name a star and it will shine forever.
