Purchasing Your Own Star
We have all laid under the stars at some point our lives and wondered what it would be like to own one. There is an innate wonder for all things unknown inside of us human beings. An iconic scene from the iconic movie “A Walk To Remember” that people have always loved is when Landon purchased a star and named it after Jamie. So if you want to recreate that scene, we’ll tell you how in this article.
It is the gift idea that is truly heartfelt and raw. You can purchase a star and name it after your loved one, or a family member that has already passed, or the pet that was your closest friend in all of your childhood years. The entire package includes a certificate, a star map which shows you how to locate the star you bought, and others that make it feel so absolutely real.
Unfortunately, there are people out there who tarnish something as sweet as buying a star. We know of six companies that trick you into believing you can actually purchase the rights to a star. I hate to break it to you, but there are no commercial companies that have the authority to name stars, let alone sell them. They must be really having a kick out of it, adding special things like a prestigious certificate, guide to locating your star, and all that stuff that make it seem actually legal. They even give a good deal of $40-$60 to have your own star.
It would’ve been understandable for companies to have this kind of business venture, but they don’t transparently tell you that they have no right to name any of the stars in the sky. Stars can only be named officially by the famous International Astronomical Union which is absolutely not a commercial organization. The unofficial companies that sell stars cannot give you straight answers and truths like the ones I’ve given you here, and even find a loophole through making information so tiny that you barely see them at the bottom of the page.
However, there really must be a light at the end of the tunnel because there is one exception that you will find. Star Name Registry is a star naming registry that tells you exactly what you will get. They give you detailed information and a wide array of options. You can check out this site and see for yourself.
So if you’re still planning on buying a star, do it from a company that cares enough to tell you the truth along with your beautiful package.
And even if it will not be officially recognized, that does not mean it makes the act of giving and naming a star any less special. So click this link and name a star now!
