Throughout history, dozens of star catalogs have been organized by astronomers from all over the world. These catalogs contain many of the same stars, with differing numerical designations. Before 1979, no one had created a star catalog that invited everyone to claim a little piece of the heavens and name their own star.  That’s where International Star Registry came in. Our mission is to provide unforgettable, one-of-a-kind gifts for any occasion. When you name a star with us, you will have peace of mind that it is unique and is only named once. After naming your star, it is then recorded in the only published directory of named stars in the world. The first edition of the star catalog, Your Place in the Cosmos, was published and copyrighted in 1985 (Library of Congress Catalog No. 84-63015). 

Since the first edition was published in 1985, we have produced 9 additional volumes as the list of honorees grows. Your Place in the Cosmos, Volume 11 is will be available for purchase in early 2024.  Pre-orders begin in now! The book makes a wonderful follow-up gift, as well as a memorable family heirloom. Find your star name in the book with its location!

Each volume contains information about the history, astronomy, and lore of the constellations. All volumes include illustrations are derived from the 1620-star atlas by Johannes Hevelius, as well the telescopic coordinates of every star named since the previous publication.  Did you name a star many years ago? Many of the past volumes are available to purchase! Call our office at 800-282-3333 and we will be happy to help you find your star and identify the correct volume of the book.
