Planetarium stars spell love for Georgia couple

MACON, Ga. (AP) - The way the stars aligned inside a Macon planetarium caught a 22-year-old college student by surprise.

The stars spelled out a question: "Krystal Sanderson Will You Marry Me?"

Sanderson's boyfriend Alan Gilbert was behind the message that appeared at the Museum of Arts & Sciences in Macon on Sunday. 1 of their first dates had been under the stars, and the couple spent a lot of time gazing up at the night sky.

So the 23-year-old Gilbert convinced Sanderson to come with him to the planetarium.

The Telegraph reports (http://bit.ly/15OLWgV) that the couple sat through a 30-minute show about prehistoric sea creatures before his question appeared on the screen, against a background of the Earth and stars while music played.

Others attending the show applauded after she accepted the ring.
