Adopt a Star
Do you know someone who deserves a special gift or an occasion that should be honoured with a star? We invite you to adopt-a-star!
For $60, you will receive a presentation certificate dedicating the selected star to a nominated person or event, a star chart to show you where to find the star, some background information on the starís constellation, and a pass to attend a show at the Stardome Observatory.
Give a gift that is limited in supply to someone special today.
Stars selected are visible from New Zealand, and an official star catalogue name and/or number is cross-referenced on the presentation certificate you receive. The star selected and recorded on your certificate is unique to you. We allocate one certificate only to each star.
