Give yourself or a well-deserving valentine a permanent place in the cosmos with today's side deal: for $25, you get $55 toward anything offered by the International Star Registry. Packages ship within 1–3 days of ordering, so move at near light speed to receive your special gift by February 14.
Star Registry's custom star-naming kits (starting at $54) include an official and ornate parchment certificate, which you can get framed or unframed. The certificate contains the name of your choosing, the dedication date, and telescopic coordinates of your celestial entity. As a special Valentine's Day package, you can add a silver heart pendant or bracelet engraved with the name of your star for an extra $50. If you want to see your star's name preserved in print, pick up the next volume of Your Place in the Cosmos ($44.95 for volume eight). Star Registry also offers a wide range of products and upgrades that will take your star-naming (or pet-rock ownership) experience to infinity and beyond.
Besides providing a perfect natural habitat for your pet rock, a star can last several millennia longer than more conventional Valentine's presents such as a box of chocolates or one dozen roses. And even if it doesn't, the fireworks from its supernova are a spectacular gift in and of themselves. Instead of wishing upon a star, use today's Groupon to christen a star—and then collect royalties on any wishes made on it or poetry inspired by it.
You can buy more than one of these Groupons but can only apply one to each order.
- When my husband and I got married, he promised me the moon and the stars. He actually gave me the star part already!...Now you can even name a set of stars for a couple. This would make a fantastic wedding gift or an anniversary present. If you are looking to give a gift that is one of a kind, or a gift to someone who has everything......this is a perfect choice! – Tink, Shared Reviews
- It comes with the coordinates for your star, as well as a beautiful certificate that certifies your star. You can also have your name engraved on different items with the coordinates of your star; my fiance chose to get the Christmas ornament with my name engraved on it, it turned out to be a beautiful piece. – Lynn, ReviewStream
International Star Registry
The International Star Registry outfits customers with gifts not found on this planet. Literally. The company, which since 1979 has named stars for millions of recipients worldwide, including celebrities, dignitaries, and royalty, allows customers to name a star after themselves, a family member, loved one, or co-worker. With information in hand, they publish it in Your Place in the Cosmos for registration in the U.S. Copyright Office. Individuals whose names served as the inspiration also receive a custom package that contains a certificate proclaiming the star's name, a booklet on celestial bodies, and a sky chart that shows the star's coordinates, saving them from having to tether it to a fence post for future findings.
