Only a small number of stars in our sky actually have names allocated to them; the majority are nameless and are distinguished by their catalogue number only. Your gift box contains the details of one of these unnamed stars that is ready for naming by you.

On your Star Details Form is information about your star; two of these references being your star's Right Ascension and Declination. These are the co-ordinates that relate to the exact position of your star in the sky. Just use these co-ordinates and the instructions on your '5 Steps to Locating Your Star sheet to find the exact location of your star on the huge wall map enclosed.

Naming your star is easy; you can either complete the process online or fill in and return the lower section of your Star Registration Form. You are required to enter your star name, your contact and delivery details. This is then entered into the Star Registry and you are sent a certificate confirming your star registration.

This information will then be periodically submitted to the British Library.

Inside the gift box:

  • Welcome letter
  • An explanation of the gift
  • Star naming instructions
  • Unique information about the star
  • A guide on how to locate the star
  • Star and astronomy booklet
  • Star wall map
  • Presentation certificate
  • Personalisation pen
  • Gift Summary:

    • An out of this world gift
    • Details of one unique gift enclosed that is ready for naming
    • A great booklet about stars and astronomy
    • Find your star on the huge wall map enclosed
    • Easy to follow star naming instructions
    • Register your details either online or by returning the Star Naming Instructions form inside your gift box.
    • See your star name stored at the British Library.
    • After registration receive an ornate certificate displaying your star name
    • A touching gift idea 'a star named after you for eternity'

    just what i needed to highlight where my mum and dad are in heaven

     An ok present....

    but few people realise that this is a novelty item only. There is no database in the world where your star will be known by the name you call it. The same star may be named hundreds of times over. This present simply picks a random star in the sky and prints a certificate telling you that you have named it. Fun, but not real.

     A Legacy Indeed and a beutiful story to tell your children

    | | See all honieb1's reviews (15)

    I was browsing through the gifts list last year when I came across this. I read the review 'Something to leave behind - a Legacy' and was so overwhelmed that I emailed all of my friends and family as to how beautiful this was and the perfect gift. I lost my Mum 6 years ago and thought it amazingly fitting and somthing very special to be able to look up to the stars and imagine she was looking down at me (or at least a star named after her - something I could identify with when I looked into the stars). Whenever I see fireworks, I cry, because my Mum loved them so much and it was wonderful to have family get togethers where we would watch them. After she died, we raised £7000 in her name towards Cancer charites and the weekend was completed with fireworks shooting into the night sky. I had a lump in my throat when I looked up and thought of her.
    Last Christmas, I received this gift from my Partner and Husband to be. He was unaware of the email I had sent and yet he thought it was the perfect gift for me. He was not so suprised when I was filled with emotion and said I wanted to name it after my Mum (Pamela Fitzgerald nee Gennis).

    This is truly a Legacy to leave behind and a lovely story to tell your Children and Grandchildren. A hard gift to beat, I think.

     Nice thought

    Name a star is a lovely thought for someone. The presentation is nice enough and comes with a sky map (wall chart) to find your map as well as some details to get your star registered online.
    The map we got told us our star was only visable at the equator, but this is wrong as further research shows it is viewable (with equipment) from the UK.
    The other thing to bare in mind is that athough the star is registered british library (or something like that) it really means nothing and it's worthwhile mentioning that no scientist is going to be calling your star the name you chose. It really is just the sentiment.

    Guys this is amazing. My Grandad passed away 2 years ago and my nan has never been the same and then i saw this. She always used to say when i was little that when she dies to look to the stars and we would be able to see her. Now that Grandad has passed away i wanted somethin to give her somethin to keep with her. Knowing that my grandad, Her husband is still there looking down on us and making sure we stay on course. This is gonna be a great christmas present and i know she is gonna love it !!
