The Truth About Buying A Star

Buying a star can look like the perfect gift. It’s thoughtful, fun and unique and comes with a pretty certificate and loads of information about the star itself and also about astronomy. Your friend or family member is awed.

But remember that you did not really buy a star. The only organization that can name stars is the International Astronomical Union (IAU) and they don’t sell the rights to stars. When some people think to buy a star NASA comes to mind, but NASA doesn’t sell stars either, there is no NASA star registry unfortunately.

So, you didn’t really buy the star, so what? It is still a great and memorable gift and almost anyone would be flattered that you thought so much of them to come up with such a unique and timeless gift. Don’t dwell on the details and just remember that as with most gifts it’s the though that really counts.

One of the most famous companies that people use to dedicate a star is the International Star Registry. There are numerous others as well and all of them get you pretty much the same thing. Research various star naming groups and compare what you get for the price. Some are as low as $15 to buy a star in the sky.

Well then, even though your name isn’t going to be the official name of the star, it IS still a cool gift and one that people will definitely appreciate. The basic gift usually comes with a parchment paper certificate, the name and coordinates of the star, a star map showing where the star is located as well as information about astronomy and possibly even about the star itself. You can also buy additional things such as a frame for the certificate and a letter congratulating the new star owner. Really cool stuff it you’re buying the star for a child.

Even though buying a star is nothing more than a novelty it is the thought behind the gift that counts. Just make sure you know exactly what you’re getting and look at several different star registry companies before you buy. That way you can get the best deal and the perfect gift for your next holiday, birthday or anniversary.
