General information about Star Register

Star Register

Star Register is a non-governmental, non-profit and independent star registry from Europe. At the moment, we have one of the largest and the oldest online star name databases in the world. Moreover, the location of every celestial object in our database is recognized and approved by NASA.

Online Star Registry has been authorized to issue star registration documents (Star Certificate and Star Map) for every entry in the star registration database ever made. Therefore, everyone will be able to find their star in our catalogues till the end of the time.

Star Register partners

In 2016 our database exceeded 50 000 unique star registration records. Due to limited possibilities of registering stars for a rapidly growing number of individuals interested in naming stars, in 2010, we had launched a program where commercial entities gained an opportunity to submit their applications to become our official partners. The following guaranteed businesses quick access to our global star registry. In return, in the scope of the Partnership Program, the commercial websites have been monitored and audited monthly. All our partners are highly qualified specialists who use the latest technologies to ensure quick and safe star registration.

What is Star Registration?

History of Names

From the second, the man laid eyes on the night sky, he/she felt the need to record the location of each astronomical object. In fact, scientists still refer to the most ancient cosmic guides presented by Ptolemy or Babylonian astronomers. International Astronomical Union has updated older star catalogues with the most recent discoveries in the field of astronomy. However, the IAU has created the list of star names for scientific purposes only. Therefore, approved stellar names are in a rigid format with no personal implications.

IAU Star Naming

Knowing that IAU does not offer registration services, astronomy enthusiasts and experts decided to create a unified and official database allowing anyone to leave their mark on the universe with star registration.

International Star database

All in all, Star Register is a company that provides star naming services all over the world. Every star registration provides one entry in the international database, as well as the Certificate, which is a proof of stellar record, and a Star Map with the exact coordinates of the star. A list of all registered stars is available in star registry lookup.
