I wouldn’t mind doing this but it’s not a driving force for me right now. will keep it on back burner but for now, it’s out 6 years ago
Ok i did some research on naming a star after me and it turns out that there is no official way of naming a star after one’s self because there is only one company out there that does this
Only the International Astronomical Union (IAU) has the right to officially name celestial objects. It does so for scientific purposes only and does not recognize any commercial naming systems. The IAU, viewed by astronomers as the reputable governing body, is well aware of the sea of commercial star vendors. It has this to say:
“The IAU dissociates itself entirely from the commercial practice of ‘selling’ fictitious star names.”
Some folks wonder, understandably, why stars are not given names in lieu of boring numbers.
The IAU does recognize a handful of ancient star names, given to some of the brightest stars in our sky. But with millions and millions of stars out there, it wisely decided long ago that a numbering system is more useful for scientists.
As the IAU puts it, “Finding Maria Gonzalez in Argentina or John Smith in Britain just from their names is pretty hopeless, but if you know their precise address (perhaps from their social security number) you can contact them without knowing their name at all.”
As a web site called Name a Star admits, “Scientists will never want to deal with finding ‘Aunt Martha’s Star.’” This company deserves a gold star for forthrightness.
Others are not so straightforward.
Too bad i thought it would be cool but its not worth spending 60 bucks for a piece of paper 6 years ago
