INGLESIDE, Ill., Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The International Star Registry
has named its millionth star in the sky since the company was founded more
than 20 years ago. To date, thousands of people have named stars to celebrate
holidays such as Christmas, Hanukah and Valentine's Day.
Some celebrity clients include Madonna, Mick Jagger, Nicole Kidman, Oprah
Winfrey and the Queen Mother. Actor James Gandolfini of the Sopranos recently
received a star for his birthday, and a star was recently named in honor of
the birth of actress Joely Fischer's new daughter.
It's easy to name a star. Just pick a name under 35 characters (or use
your own) and the International Star Registry will help you choose from their
inventory of 18 million stars.
"Naming a star is a unique and personal gift that lasts a lifetime," said
Rocky Mosele, Vice President and Director of Marketing. "It's also a great
idea for the last minute shopper."
For $48 unframed and $91 framed (plus shipping and handling), clients
receive a beautiful 12" x 16" parchment certificate with the star name of
their choice, dedication date, and telescopic coordinates, visible with a
small telescope or binoculars. Also included is a comprehensive booklet with
charts of the constellations plus a larger, more detailed chart with the
star's name encircled in red.
How it works
The International Star Registry uses a system for star tracking that
utilizes charting information on the 18 million stars gathered for the Hubble
Space telescope. Each new star is mapped and charted individually by
constellation. Once a star is designated, its name and coordinates are
entered into the company's official listing, "Your Place in the Cosmos." The
master listing is published and copyrighted in a hard-covered astronomy book
in the United States and stored in a vault in Switzerland. New volumes of the
book are generated every three to four years and bound copies are made
available to the public.
