Welcome to International Star Registry

For nearly four decades, we have had the pleasure of working with millions of people asking us how to buy a star. Although we do not sell stars, we do allow people to claim their own place in the cosmos when they name a star!

Like the ancients before us, people worldwide are moved by the stars in very personal way. Whether we would like to know how to buy a star as a gift for our sweetheart, or name astar as a lasting memorial, there is no greater honor than writing one’s name among the stars.

For thousands of years, mankind has been mapping and recording celestial objects. From the creation of early star names and their place in ancient mythology and navigation, to multiple modern scientific catalogs, there have been dozens of listings of the stars created.

Starting in 1979, International Star Registry made the heavens available to anyone wishing to name a star that had only been numbered in previous star catalogs. The star names are indexed alphabetically in our star catalog with their telescopic coordinates and are permanently recorded in our published, copyrighted listing of named stars.

These star names are recorded in this way so that centuries from now our descendants can locate these star names and, using the telescopic coordinates, locate the star you named. 9 volumes of the book Your Place in the Cosmos (Library of Congress Catalog No. 84-63015) have been published and registered in the copyright office of the United States. The coordinates are derived from the NASA Hubble Guide Star Catalog and each star is named only once. When you name a star for a loved one, it is a beautiful, memorable gift.

Astronomers do not use the names we assign to the stars. In 1919, The International Astronomical Union (IAU) was established with the objective is to promote and safeguard the science of astronomy. For scientific uniformity, it is the only body that names celestial objects for scientific use, which it does very infrequently. We believe the stars overhead do not belong solely to the scientific community, but to everyone.

Imposter Companies: Several companies have opened up over the years, some even violating our Federally Registered trademark STAR REGISTRY®, INTERNATIONAL STAR REGISTRY®, and STARREGISTRY.COM® but they are not International Star Registry, nor are they affiliated with us. None have published a star catalog. Many of these firms have closed, leaving no records of named stars.

International Star Registry produces the only permanently published and copyrighted listing of named stars in the world. We are Headquartered in Glenview, IL, USA and are a member of the Better Business Bureau with an A+ rating.
