These are the Presidents who led our nation as we experienced the greatest 70 years of technological advancement in history. During these decades our world has been transformed.  Satellites now allow us the communicate around the globe. We have explored space and walked on the Moon.

We are always impressed when we receive a call from someone wishing to name a star for a president.  Some of the stars have been named in memoriam by an admirer. Some of the stars have also been named for family members and for presidential couples. Additionally, we have named stars for Vice Presidents, Royalty, and dozens of World Leaders.  Your Place in the Cosmos is an historic record of these stars. It includes stars named for Astronauts, Generals, Humanitarian Leaders, and Heroes around the world. Our history of naming stars goes back close to half a century. International Star Registry began in 1979 as a gift for celebrities. Naming a star quickly became a favorite gift package for people everywhere. It’s the perfect gift for any occasion.
