Buy a Memorial Star

If you’re looking for the perfect gift idea, especially for your girlfriend or a small child then you should consider buying a memorial star. Yes, it’s been possible to do this for many years, but it’s still a fun, unique and romantic gift idea. Buying a star in the sky isn’t something that your loved one will think of and that will make even more special when you present them with their new star.

You can find sites selling stars for under $20 which is a very small price to pay for such a memorable gift. You won’t actually get the real star, but you will get to name it. Imagine the look on your girlfriends face when you tell her that she has a piece of the heavens named after her.

Many people are already interested in astronomy or science fiction and this makes it an even more special gift for those people. They already have a love of the stars and what could be more special to them than having a star named after them. Trust me, if you dedicate a star to a science fiction fan they will be grateful and impressed.

The only thing that holds some people back from purchasing a star is that they think that it can’t be possible to actually buy and own a star. They would be correct in this. The only agency that can name stars is the International Astronomical Union (IAU) and they are not in the business of selling stars. And no, you cannot buy a star from NASA either.

While that can be disappointing to some, the fact is that it is still very thoughtful to buy someone a star, even if the name is only registered with the company that sold you the name. And really in this case it’s the though that counts more than anything. Do your research and avoid any company that tells you they are selling you the official star’s name. I think you’ll find though that most of the companies are very upfront about exactly what they are selling you.

I think it would be really cool to buy memorial stars in the same area of the sky for everyone in your family. Then, no matter where each of you are in the world you could look up and see a memorial to your family with each person represented.
