CHICAGO, April 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- What better way to show your mother how much you care than to do what the stars do, have a star named after her! Anderson Cooper presented a star to John Cusack live on air last week; Prince William & Kate each have a star, Madonna has one, as well as Zack Efron, Taylor Swift, and Brad & Angelina to name a few.
Mother's Day is a time to commemorate and celebrate Mom. By naming a star for your mother, you are charting a tiny piece of the universe that is strictly hers alone. The Cassiopeia constellation located in the northern sky was named after the queen in Greek mythology. Purchasers can visit starregistry.com and choose to have a star named close to Cassiopeia through the International Star Registry.
The earliest Mother's Day celebrations can be traced back to the rituals held every spring in ancient Greece to honor Rhea, Mother of the Gods. Greek mythology also played a role in the naming of the constellations. Most names are based on mythological stories in which the gods bestowed the ultimate reward or recognition on a hero by placing that individual in the sky as a constellation.
Founded in 1979, the International Star Registry ® helps clients name one of approximately eighteen million charted stars after their loved ones. The $54 star kits produced by the company include a 12"x16" full color, personalized parchment certificate. The package includes the chosen name, telescopic coordinates for locating the star, a sky chart with the chosen star circled for easy identification and a booklet on astronomy. The new star names are recorded in the book "Your Place in the Cosmos" to be filed in the US Copyright Office.
