For a graduation present my mom had a star named after me! The official
certificate is currently hanging on the living room wall of my new apartment.
On the lower right it says the following:
"Know ye herewith that the International Star Registry doth hereby
* redesignate star number * Cepheus RA 21h 13m 51s D57°2'
to the name * Geoff David Fortytwo Know ye further that this
star will henceforth be known by this name * This name is permanently
filed in The Registry's vault in * Switzerland and recorded in a book
which will be registered in the copyright office of the * United States
of America * *"
Then, on the lower left side it says the following:
"In witness whereof we hereunto set our hands and affix the seal
of the * International Star Registry * this 30th day of May 1998 P
McAdams ? St?l?e Secretary Registrar
Pretty awesome! It's the most excellent present I've ever received!
