Name an extra bright star
Extra bright stars exclusively for you in the Staracle International Star Directory
All stars in the Staracle International Star Directory are unique. We never give away the same star twice.
Therefore, it is not possible to name the bright and well visible stars at Staracle: There are simply not enough of them.
Some commercial star naming companies offer well visible stars while giving away the same bright stars over and over again.
At Staracle, we want your star to be unique! Therefore, we decided to let you name the extra bright stars on a yearly basis.
There will only be one name per year, and for each year, the name will be recorded in our data base.
You will receive a certificate and star chart for your star's regstration.
Since there are so few bright stars, there is a nominal charge for every extra bright star. This will help us maintain our general free star naming service.
The table below shows the overall number of stars for a certain brightness. The annual for a one-year naming of a star depends on its brightness.
