NAME A STAR GIFT BOX
Only a small number of stars in our sky actually have names allocated to them. The majority are nameless and are distinguished only by their catalogue number. This gift box contains the details of one of these unnamed stars just waiting to be named by you.
On the Star Details Form is information about your star including your star’s Right Ascension and Declination. These are the co-ordinates that relate to the location of your star in the sky. Use these co-ordinates and the ‘5 Steps to Locating Your Star’ sheet to find the exact position of your star on the enclosed wall map.
Naming your star is easy. You can either complete the process online or fill in and return the lower section of your Gift Registration Instructions. You are required to enter your star name and your contact 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 to ensure the list is available to as many people as possible and preserved for as long as possible.

- Welcome letter

Can I call my star anything I choose?
Yes, there are no restrictions with star name choice.
How long does it take to receive my confirmation certificate?
This depends on how you choose to register your star. If you register online then you will receive your star confirmation certificate within 10 working days. If you fill out and return your form by post then this period of time is slightly increased to 28 days from when the form is received by Gift Republic.
How long do I have to register my gift?
Your gift code expires 12 months after the date of purchase. We recommend that you register your gift as soon as possible.
Disclaimer: By completing and returning the registration form the recipient of this gift can have a star registered in their name. The star name will be stored and periodically submitted to the British Library. Neither Gift Republic Ltd nor any other supplier can alter the name of well-known stars. The star name will not necessarily be recognized by any official scientific or astronomical organisations, or astronomers, and neither Gift Republic Ltd nor its suppliers will accept any liability for any such non-recognition.
