What is star naming?

In the context of star naming, it is generally understood that a private person is naming a star. This name can be either an invented name, such as “little mouse”, or a real name, for example “Sarah Johnson”. In general, any name is possible. All the star namings we process are recorded in the globally recognised Star-naming Registry. The naming of a star is valid for a lifetime, and there are no additional costs.

Think about the name you want for the star, the date you want to name it on and a personal text for the recipient.

Step 2:

What is the Star-naming Registry

We have maintained strong relations with this registry for several years and can, therefore, obtain a smooth registration for your star, in just a few hours.
