What is a 'the day you were born?
A map of stars is a very detailed depiction of what the night sky looked like on a specific date of your choice. It’s like looking up into the night sky on that special date, seeing the sky exactly as it was and reliving that moment in time.
Some believe that the positioning of stars and other celestial bodies influences life here on Earth. On momentous occasions, such as a birth of a child, the stars, planets, and the heavens are believed to be in perfect harmony. It’s a moment worth capturing forever, as it’s these special events that help to define our course through life.
Regardless of how you feel about the sky’s impact on life on Earth, custom star map posters are meant to mark your most special moments in life. They’re beautiful and artistic and are made for displaying in your home. What’s more, they make excellent gifts to share with family members, your spouse, your children, or other loved ones whose lives you wish to celebrate.
Are our 'the night you were born star map' accurate?
Our interactive star map editor isn’t just for show. It’s actually powered by sophisticated technology using data from the Hipparcos for the most accurate recreation of the night sky. Hipparcos was the first satellite space project that focused on astrometry, which is the measurement of how celestial bodies are positioned in the sky. It has collected data across more than 118,000 stars in the sky, allowing us to make highly detailed star maps for our customers.
When you order a map of stars poster from Positive Prints, it’s the next best thing to traveling back in time to gaze upon the night sky on the night of the birth of a child.
