It takes two to tango around a barycenter. Celebrate the gravity of your special connection with a loved one with our Adopt a Star: Binary Star package.


Have you found a person you want to be with through space and time? Or, is there a particular friend you’d be lost without?  Binary stars often revolve around a common center (barycenter) in a celestial dance through the ages.
