Ultimate Star Kit

Naming a star is a gesture of love, of respect, of commemoration. By naming a star, you are concretely expressing your feelings, and you do so for all eternity: stars keep their names forever. The star that we will name for you will be as unique as the person for whom you are naming it.

What does your package contain?

Your Ultimate Star package will include a beautiful framed 30 x 40 cm (12 x 16 in.) full colour parchment certificate, personalized with the star name that you have chosen, the date on which you would like for the new name to become effective and the coordinates for the star that we will have named for you.

Your gift package will also include a personalized framed 30 x 40 cm (12 x 16 in.) sky chart showing the star name and the date. The sky chart will also show the constellation where the star is located and the exact location of the star, circled in red.

A booklet on astronomy written by a professional astronomer with additional sky charts will also be enclosed in your Star Package, as well as a letter of congratulations/memorial for the recipient.


Your star

We will name a star in the constellation of your choice or, if you leave it up to us, we will choose a star in a constellation that is visible from your location on the date that you have chosen for the registration. In addition to the star package, you will also receive an email giving you a link to the Worldwide Telescope, which will enable you to see, through the magic of the web, the star that was named for you.
