An excellent gift for a recent high school graduate, a niece/nephew/son/daughter/grandchild, a friend or a peer, is the adoption of a variable star, especially one whose history is well recorded in our AID! To enhance this program, we decided to provide certificates of adoption, so that your gift will be proudly displayed on one’s wall, as a reminder of your precious gif and of the dynamic phenomena variable stars exhibit.  


Will you help us design a certificate for our adopt-a-star program? Let’s make it a fun competition: please send us your ideas or designs by August 15 (2016) via email at (please use the subject line “adopt-a-star certificate”). The winner will receive a lovely AAVSO bag!


Also, please consider adopting a star yourself. It is a great way to support the AAVSO’s work.


Thank you in advance for your help!

Best wishes – clear skies,
