  • Q: Can I name a star?
  • A: Yes. You can dedicate a star to someone special. We offer a Gift Package where we select a special star in the sky and record your Star Name and Star Date. The Gift Package includes a beautiful parchment Certificate, a Sky Chart with your name and the star's coordinates and an informative booklet on astronomy. We publish all names in the astronomical compendium Your Place in the Cosmos, which is registered in the U.S. Copyright Office.
  • Q: Am I buying the star?
  • A: No. We do not own the star, so we cannot sell it to you.
    This is like adopting the star. This star is associated with that special someone. It is something you can point at to know that there is something special out there for you.
  • Q: Will the scientific community recognize my star name?
  • A: No. We are a private company that provides Gift Packages. Astronomers will not recognize your name because your name is published only in our Star catalog. We periodically print a book called Your Place in the Cosmos ©,which lists the stars that we have named.

Star Naming

  • Q: Can I pick where my star is located?
  • A: You can select which constellation you want you star to be in.
  • Q: Can I request my star to be located in a specific area?
