Wrap up an out-of-this-world gift and give your loved one a star! It is a unique way to honour a new birth or birthday, a special anniversary, or to say ‘thanks’ or ‘I love you’.
Purchasing an Adopt a Star pack helps Stardome (a registered charitable trust) continue to share astronomical knowledge and education with the public and schools of Auckland. The money raised from Adopt a Star sales goes towards our open days, upgrading planetarium shows and reaching out to students as part of our education programme.
The position of the star selected will be visible from your selected location but the star itself more than likely will not be. On the darkest of nights, away from city lights, no more than 5,000 stars can be seen with the unaided eye. However, the constellation where your star belongs should be identifiable using the star chart provided.
An official star catalogue name and/or number is cross-referenced on the presentation certificate you receive.
You do not get naming or ownership rights to the star.
The adoption programme is a donation to Stardome Observatory & Planetarium and does not constitute any legal ownership or property entitlement.
The $5 courier cost only covers shipping within New Zealand. We do not ship to overseas addresses. Please provide us with a New Zealand address.
