For centuries, the cosmos has captivated the imaginations of many. Kings and queens of long ago went to great lengths to unlock the celestial doors they imagined held the secrets to their fates. In their quest, medieval astrologers were hired to study the exact position of the planets in painstaking detail. Eager to make the correct prediction (and thereby avoid punishment), they spent hours drawing up elaborate illustrations to capture the solar system on each day of the year.
Now, fast forward hundreds of years later, we’re granted this same insight into the solar system on any given day with just the click of a button. Thanks to NASA’s data and algorithms, SpaceTime Coordinates can easily and quickly provide you with an impressively precise and accurate picture of the very moment you were born.
Like a person’s DNA, no two snapshots are the same which makes for an extraordinary gift. “On any given date, the Solar System was organized in a singularly unique way – differently than any other day in history,” explains founders Govy and Martin Vézina. “Our mission is to provide you with the actual snapshot of the Solar System that corresponds to your most special day.”
Using data from NASA, SpaceTime Coordinates creates posters that can show what space looked like on any day—including your birthday!
They come in three colors: black, white, and dark blue.
