Millionth Star Named by the International Star Registry
-- Celebrities and People Across the World Are Wishing Upon Their Very Own
Stars for the Holidays --
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. About the International Star Registry The International Star Registry is a company that offers customers the opportunity to name stars. Since the company was founded in 1979, nearly one million stars have been named to celebrate holidays, toast weddings, commemorate births and honor memorials. Based in Ingleside, IL, the International Star Registry also has offices in Australia, Canada, England, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, Switzerland and many other countries.
