Things to consider

Name a visible star

If you name a star that can't be seen from the recipient's location, it will cause frustration. In the beginning, we ask for your country, so we can make sure to name a star that never settles below the horizon and is visible throughout the whole year.

Good to know

If you decide to name a star with us, you can rest assured that it will be clearly visible from your given country & continent!

Choose the right partner

Naming a star for someone is a once-in-a-lifetime gift, so make sure everything goes smoothly.

We name stars since 2011 and have automated all the processes, that's why registering a star with us takes less than 2 hours.

Amazing price quick service, and my partner absolutely loved it for valentines Day. It's really easy to do a really nice gift for anyone. The best part about it is that not everyone got one

My daughter lost her father and I thought no better way to keep her spirits up by naming a star after him. I thank you, you did a great, quick and convenient job.

Questions & Answers

How is it possible to name a star?

We are a star-naming company that has partnered up with the Star Register in order to make it possible to name stars in the night sky for private individuals.

After you placed the order with us, we submit all the information about the star to the star registry and get your star named within a few hours.

Good to know

We are an official partner of the Star Register, that allows us to name stars for individuals.

Can I buy a star?

First, buying a star is not possible in terms of owning it. But after all, you want to name a star instead of buying it.

The Outer Space treaty, which is in effect since 1976, forbids countries to own celestial bodies including stars. Although it does not explicitely forbid individuals to buy a star, there is no point in owning a star as these rights would not bring any benefit.

But several providers like us allow you to name a star in the night sky and dedicate it to someone.

Remember

It is not possible to buy a star, but you can name a star.

Does the scientific name change?

When individuals name a star, the scientific name of the star does not change. Only the IAU (International Astronomical Union) can name a star scientifically.

The stars named by the IAU are mostly Latin names like Beta Centauri and Delta Orionis and are further used in scientific papers and for research.

If individuals name a star as a gift, these names don't show up in scientific papers and research but in private star registries, which is what most individuals would want.

Remember

Naming a star for individuals is possible but not for research and scientific purpose.
