Our proprietary method patent allows us to scientifically limit the number of stars that can be viewed in the sky on a date, at a time above a specified location. When we control the star’s "apparent magnitude", which is an astronomical data point that measures how bright the star appears from Earth, (a specific brightness level unique to each star and planet), My Sky is able to limit the stars and design a piece with more clarity, as it will highlight identifiable stars and constellation patterns.
Our pieces blend Astronomy with Art, balancing the stars in your sky, while being accurate to the location above.
US Patent Number 10,428,449 B1 Issued: October 1, 2019
Each MY SKY piece respects the apparent magnitude designated to each star and applies the differentiating algorithms to accurately create the sky designs on all pieces. We customize ornamental wear, including necklaces, medallions, bracelets, earrings and rings.

Be creative! There are so many other ways to create your sky, your way…We also have Basic Customization Options for Whispering Sky, 12 Orbits and Rock Star Medallion
Wish Upon A Star ~ The Brightest Star, accurately placed
Count Your Lucky Stars ~ The 5 Brightest Stars, accurately placed
Written in the Stars ~ The 20 Brightest Stars, primarily, those with an Apparent Magnitude of 2.0 or higher
You will receive an accurate telescopic sky map of the stars above you with magnitudes of 2.5 or greater, at your given location, on your date and at your time. It we are not given a specific time, our default time will be 23.59.59, the sky one second before midnight on the say you have selected.
You will also receive the location of your 5 brightest visible stars, with their names. The brightest star will be highlighted accompanied by a table used in the Astronomical Community as a source of scientific data.
The Apparent magnitude of a star is a number that tells how bright that star appears at its great distance from Earth. The scale is "backwards" and logarithmic. Larger magnitudes correspond to fainter stars. Note that brightness is another way to say the flux of light, in Watts per square meter, coming towards us.
Absolute magnitude is the apparent magnitude the star would have if it were placed 10 parsecs from the earth. Doing this to the star will make it appear brighter or fainter from the inverse square law of light.
We are used to seeing our solar system from earth, and the stars that appear very bright, like the sun, are typically those closer to earth.
An easy way to understand this concept is to think of how small a 6’ person would appear to you from a mile away and imagine that person’s twin standing just a few feet away. Take a photo. That is an apparent image!
