Star Naming and more
A star naming allows you to name a star after a dear person. No matter whether for a wedding, birth, anniversary, or a sad occasion, the naming of a star is the perfect gift to remember a special moment in your or someone else’s life.
But you will not only receive a star naming certificate. Each star name will be entered into the prestigious International Star & Space Registry and the certificate will receive the original seal of the registry to guarantee the authenticity of the certificate.
First select the perfect star naming gift package. You can choose between 4 different options.
Secondly select the name for the star and the desired date. The name of the star can be any name you'd like. It can also be a fictional one ore even two names like Jeff & Claudia. The date can be freely choosen and won't affect the delivery date. It can be in the future or in the past. No matter which date you choose we will ship your order immediately.
After you successfully submitted all the relevant data you can lay back and wait for a great and unique gift. We will enter your star naming into the International Space Register and send you your documents as fast as possible.
You can give the star any name you like. It can also be a fictional one or even two names as Jeff & Claudia.
The date is the one with which your star gets registered. The date can be in the present, in the future, or in the past.
We always recommend picking a date with a special meaning like a birthday, anniversary, or a wedding day. The picked date doesn't have any influence on the purchase or the delivery. Even if the picked date is in the future, your star naming will still be prepared, shipped, and registered immediately after receipt.
All Star Namings will be registered into the International Space Registry. The International Space Registry is a non-governmental, private star registry, based in Germany and has one of the most prestigious star registration catalogues.

A constellation is an area of the celestial sphere.
Constellations are typically grouped around asterisms, patterns formed by prominent, relatively bright stars that appear to be close to each other in the night sky.
These star patterns themselves are often mistakenly called constellations, whether they are famous asterisms like Orion’s Belt, the Big Dipper, or the Southern Cross, or less familiar patterns formed by stars visible to the naked eye and belonging to one of the 88 constellations.
There are also 12 Zodiac constellations. Zodiac constellations are constellations that lie along the plane of the ecliptic.
The ecliptic, or the apparent path of the Sun, is defined by the circular path of the Sun across the sky, as seen from Earth.

Visible stars are visible with the naked eye from places with little light pollution. Bright and very bright stars are among the brightest and most exclusive stars in the night sky. They are even visible in cities with a lot of light pollution.
A binary system is one in which two stars orbit around a common centre of mass, that is they are gravitationally bound to each other.

With the help of the registration number you can also discover your star in the Space Registry Online Planetarium.
Your star naming has no expiration date. Your star will be permanently listed in the International Space Register without additional costs.
