A stunning 40x50cm (16x20") star map; the sky as seen from a given place & time. Established 2006. Capturing the stars of past or future...
...Do you need a special present for a special occasion? Valentine's Day? Wedding? Why not to capture that occasion in the stars and create a heartwarming gift?
All you need to decide is the location, the date and time. It can be for example when and where the person celebrating his or her birthday was born. Or when the wedding of your best friend will take place. Any occasion is the perfect occasion for creating this star gift.
Our maps can show the stars as seen from any location on Earth, literally. And the date and time can be in the past or future. No problem if that unique moment is during the day, the stars never sleep...
You can also add a personal note. It is limited to 5 lines. For example a most common one for a wedding is: "The sky over our wedding on ....date.... On this date, under these stars, we joined our lives."
PLEASE NOTE THERE ARE THE CO-ORDINATES AND THE DATE SHOWN IN A SMALL FONT RIGHT UNDERNEATH THE SKY MAP. HOWEVER, AS THE LOCATION IS NOT THERE, IF YOU WISH THE PRINT TO MENTION IT, PLEASE ADD IT TO THE PERSONAL MESSAGE LINE AND IT WILL THEN DISPLAYED WHERE THE OTHER PERSONALISED TEXT IS, eg. The sky over Venice
GreaterSkies prints are not only beatiful but also scientifically accurate! There was a lot of studying involved in learning how it all works up there! We are sure it will be very much appreciated by those who enjoy looking at the night sky, astronomers young and old; but also anybody who'd want to keep the wonder of a particular starry sky for ever.
A bespoke gift for weddings, religious festivities, and for all those occasions which deserve something really special. Something that shows that you care. And, of course, you can add a personal note to help expressing yourself.
A unique gift for birthdays, first anniversary or just any anniversary, weddings or Father's Day! Day or night, past or future, you can capture that sky showing thousands of stars, all the planets, the Sun and the Moon.
Greater Skies sky posters/pictures are printed on heavy-weight (260 gsm) archival quality satin photographic paper, using archive quality inks which illustrate our maps best but also are made to last a very long time.
We can frame your sky map for you; we can send it encased in a high-quality black wooden frame, and an equally high-quality framing glass made of extra-transparent, thin Styrene. This is not glass, as glass is thicker and less transparent, detracting from the overal clarity. We've also made sure that it's easy and convenient to frame it yourself: the size is such that you'll be able to mount it in a standard frame.
40x50cm (16x20 inches), fitting a standard frame.
