What is a Personalised Star Map?
A personalised star map is a very unique and special gift for that special someone in your life, using some pretty amazing (and complicated!) software, we're able to display and print where the stars in the night sky were on any given night in history, within reason... As well as this, we're able to predict where the stars will be in the future.
We'll then use this software to map and grid the constellations on the date you enter through the site, we'll print that out with the other information you enter through the site, including the location, date and lines of personalised text you've entered through the checkout stages. We will then print out your map based on our two designs of maps; Midnight Blue Starmap and Charcoal Black Starmap. We also provide framed versions for your convenience.
But how can you find the star locations?
We use some very sophisticated and complicated software that can use data released by several star catalogues, including HYG, Hipparcos, Yale Bright Star & Gliese Catalogues to plot and position the stars in the sky, that coupled with some very complicated mathematics allows the software to determine what stars would be visible from a specific location on Earth, and plot forwards and backwards in time to print what stars would be visible at a certain time.
