Adopt A Constellation

Adopt A Constellation


A beautiful tribute or a statement of celestial love: adopt the constellation or asterism (star pattern) of your choosing, for yourself or for another, from one month to ten years! Adoptions for a month will receive an electronic certificate suitable for printing, and will be displayed as that month’s adopters on our planetarium lobby video screen. Adoptions for a year or more will receive a handsome certificate suitable for framing by postal mail, and a framed matching certificate will be displayed in the planetarium (plus the video screen display).

This order will not be finalized until payment is received. Use this button to make payment (opens in new page), then fill out the form below:
