Could this be the ultimate Valentine’s Day gift – short of buying a star?
The International Star Registry has created My Sky Moment – an online service allowing you to create a personal, memorable gift in just minutes – an exact depiction of how the stars aligned the night you met… or got engaged, or married, or another memorable moment with your significant other.
The maps of the night sky are easy to create, and unforgettable to own. Purchasers simply log on to the My Sky Moment website, enter the date and location of the special event and add a message to be printed on your own personal star map. You can choose from a variety of colours and icons to be printed on your sky poster, with the ‘Heart’ icon proving to be the most popular for celebrating Valentine’s Day. You can see an example below.
The International Star Registry has been producing astronomy-centric gifts since 1979, with My Sky Moment marking their latest crossover of astronomy and art. One of their most famous and most popular offerings has been their Name a Star program which allows individuals to name a star in the night sky and dedicate it to a friend or loved one.
“My Sky Moment continues the tradition of making the vast expanse of space something personal, romantic, and accessible to all,” the company says.
Prices start at US$49.95.
