Adopt a Star

Adopt a star in the Discovery Center's planetarium and help support the educational mission of the Discovery Center; your name, the name of a loved one or a quotation of your choice will be shown next to your star during every "Tonight's Sky" planetarium show for one year (Star level) or ten years (Galaxy level). 20 characters maximum, including spaces.

To Adopt a Star, please click on the donate button above, and in the "Other" option, indicate a donation of $125 for a one-year adoption or $1000 for a 10-year adoption. In the contact information section, include the word "adopt" after your phone number, and email Beth Pappas (epappas@starhop.com) the name you would like to see beside your star. You may also choose your favorite constellation and we will pick the brightest available star for you; or let us pick the constellation.
