What do you give the person who has everything and means everything to you? What could make someone feel more special than having a real star named in their honour? And what gift could more perfectly express how important that someone is to you? They will never forget this gift, or you.
- The star name, the date of registration, the constellation and astronomical coordinates of the star are notated on a 30x40cm parchment certificate of record
- A large astronomical chart (30x40cm) pinpoints the location
- A booklet "Our Place in the Cosmos" gives an introduction to astronomy and contains a pictorial constellation chart for orientation purposes.
Please note: The star you are naming is not visible to the naked eye. You need a 6" (150mm) telescope to see it. Only about 3000 stars are visible to the naked eye. These stars are not available for naming (and never have been) because they already have scientific and historical names. Naming a star through the International Star Registry is not recognised by the scientific community. The star's name appears in the International Star Registry records only. The stars named are not 'owned', nor is their scientific identification altered.
Once purchased, the supplier will email you the information on how to name the star in order to personalise the chart and certificate - - Make sure to check your spam/junk folder for this email.
To complete the process, reply with the star naming details.
- How do you name a star? You nominate the constellation, the date of registration, and, most importantly, the name you are giving to the star. All the instructions on how to do this will be sent to you upon receipt of your booking.
The gift package is sent from Sydney with Australia Post. Delivery takes 3-7 business days depending on your postcode.
