Our star adoption program provides a unique gift and is a way to recognise a family member or friend through the adoption of a star. All available stars in the program are between the magnitudes -1 and 4.9 (visible to the naked eye) or 5.0 and 7.9 (visible in binoculars), all in the Southern Hemisphere. The individual star adoption package includes: A certificate (suitable for framing)with star name and coordinates, and the duration and purpose of the adoption. Private star viewing night for the recipient and 3 guests within 12 months that includes several other seasonal objects and will be scheduled when your chosen star is available at a suitable time for viewing A planisphere (a device to show what constellations and stars are in the sky at any time) Star charts and co-ordinates showing where the star is located in the night sky, as well as being shown how to use these at the star viewing night Please note: Perth Observatory’s Star Adoption program doesn’t offer international naming rights to the star as there are no internationally recognised naming rights to the stars. The program is run by the Perth Observatory Volunteer Group Inc, and the income goes towards the Observatory’s not for profit, public outreach program.
