Stargazing Redefined: How to Own and Name a Star in the Galaxy

Have you ever looked up at the night sky and wished you could have a star named after someone special to you? Well, the good news is that you can! Buying and naming a star is a popular and unique way to celebrate a special occasion, such as a wedding, anniversary, or the birth of a child. But before you take the leap and buy a star, there are a few things you should know. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll walk you through the steps of buying and how to name a star.

Step 1: Choose a reputable star registry

The first step in buying and naming a star is to choose a reputable star registry. There are many companies that offer star-naming services, but not all of them are legitimate. Before you choose a star registry, do your research to ensure that they are reputable and reliable. Look for reviews from previous customers and check to see if the registry has been accredited by any independent organizations.

Step 2: Choose a star package

Once you have chosen a reputable star registry, the next step is to choose a star package. Most star registries offer different packages, each with its own set of features and prices. Basic packages typically include a certificate of registration, a star chart showing the location of your star, and information about your star’s location in the sky. More expensive packages may include additional items such as a telescope, a commemorative plaque, or a star-naming kit.

Step 3: Name your star

After you have chosen your star package, it’s time to name your star! Keep in mind that the name you choose cannot be the name of a famous person or trademarked name. You can choose any name you like, as long as it meets the registry’s guidelines. Some registries also offer the option to add a message or dedication to your star certificate.

Step 4: Wait for your certificate to arrive

After you have named your star, you will receive a certificate of registration in the mail. The certificate will include the name of your star, its coordinates in the sky, and the date of registration. Depending on the star package you chose, the certificate may also include additional items such as a star chart or information about your star.

Step 5: Enjoy your star

Congratulations, you have officially bought and named your very own star! Now it’s time to enjoy it. You can use your star chart to locate your star in the sky and share its location with your friends and family. You can also use your telescope (if you purchased one) to get a closer look at your star. And, of course, you can always look up at the night sky and feel proud knowing that you have named one of those beautiful stars.


Buying and naming a star is a unique and thoughtful way to commemorate a special occasion or person. By following these simple steps, you can easily and safely purchase and name a star without any worries. Remember to choose a reputable star registry, choose the right star package for you, choose a name that meets the registry’s guidelines, and enjoy your new star!
