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. Celebrate your connection to someone you think is out of this world by adopting a binary star cluster in your names today.

Your adopted star is visible from New Zealand and unique to you through the Space Place Adopt a Star programme.
