Twinkle, twinkle, little star, how I wonder what you are… Yes, our galaxy is truly fascinating and breathtaking at once. A long time ago, our ancestors interpreted any events only by star images.

These times are gone for a long time, but the stars are still mysterious and important celestial inhabitants for us. They turn the black night sky into something romantic. We even attribute magic powers to the stars, because shooting stars fulfill our secret wishes. The signs of the zodiac also stand for the great importance of the stars for us humans.

Besides the twinkling stars, the sun and the moon are also two celestial bodies that accompany us through the day and the night. Without the sun and its warmth, life on earth would not be possible and the moon is so powerful, that it ensures the ebb and flow of the tide.

What a beautiful idea it is to name your own child after our celestial bodies! According to the motto: sun, moon and stars.
