Name a Star
The most beautiful and unique gift you’re likely to find anywhere.
The International Stargazer Directory brings you the ‘Name a Star’ kit. Do you know someone who is truly out of this world - Why not give them the greatest honour and dedicate a piece of the heavens to them? Not only is this a truly wonderful gift, but it will last for a whopping 10 billion years! You can’t say that about your run of the mill gift vouchers.
There are millions of stars in our sky that don’t have names allocated to them. It’s a surprisingly small number that are named. This gift box holds all the details you need to know about one of these unnamed stars. All it’s waiting for is a name.
You’ll find out loads about your new star. The gift box contains information on your star’s Right Ascension and Declination (these are the co-ordinates of your star) which will help you to spot it in the heavens. You’ll also get a wall map so you can show your star off to everyone who comes to visit.
It couldn’t be easier to name your star. All you need to do is fill out the form in your gift box or go online following the Gift Registration Instructions in your pack. When naming your star you will also need to give your contact details. Once you’ve registered, your star’s new name will be entered into the Star Registry and you’ll be sent a certificate to confirm its registration.
The list will also be submitted periodically to the British Library to ensure the list is preserved and available to as many people as possible.
