The new order is shipped out by priority mail within the United States, or by Air Mail when shipped internationally. Of course, if the error is on our part, there will be no charge to you whatsoever.

 

  • How can I locate my star in the sky? There are so many millions of stars that finding your specific star can be difficult. Its brightness, distance and location in the heavens all play an important role in determining its true visibility, or apparent magnitude.

     

    • Make sure that is is a clear, dark night. The moon, street lights and other bright sources of illumination can hinder your vision.
       
    • Locate the constellation using your planisphere. You can find the instructions here to help you use this invaluable astronomer's tool.
       
    • Once you have located your star's constellation, you can use your included Star Map to find your specific star by comparing the stars in the sky with those on your map.
       

    NOTE: Your star's apparent magnitude is listed on your Star Deed, and can range in brightness from 1 to 16, with 1 being the brightest and 16 being the faintest. Stars with a magnitude of 7 or higher are too dim to be seen with the naked eye, and will require a telescope or binoculars and a very dark sky to be seen.

    On a typical, very dark night, away from city lights and pollution, a person with good eyesight can see about 2,500 stars. If you have access to a seasoned amateur astronomer with a good telescope, he can probably locate your star using the Right Ascension and Declination coordinates.

    Most people have told us that they understand how difficult it can be to locate a specific star, and they are satisfied to find the star's constellation. This is, of course, much easier and even a novice star gazer should have not trouble. We do recommend a using a Mini-Planisphere or star map to help you locate your star.

  • How often is the star database updated? The database is updated daily but it is not necessarily published every day. It is published at least once a week, usually more. 

 

  • Can I order by phone? Our order form is a Secure Order form. We have had thousands of people use this form and we have never had a problem with it. But if you still don't want to use it, we recommend that you fax in your order to us.

 

  • I want to buy a frame for the certificate. What size is the certificate? The certificate is 8 1/2" x 11".

 

  • How do I find the cataloged star in the catalog? The easiest way to find the listings on the web site is to go to the catalog pages at: http://starwishing.com/catalog.html. In the catalog, they are listed by location. The first number stands for the hours (h), the next number stands for the minutes (m), the third number stands for the seconds (s). You can find these numbers on the Star Deed certificate.

 

  • Registration - The International Astronomical Union is the only organization that is recognized by all astronomers. Our stars are registered with the Millennium Chronicle. The Millennium Chronicle Star Catalog is not used by the scientific astronomical community. There are several different star catalogs that the scientific community does use; each can have different names and numbers for the same star. However, none of the databases that the scientific community uses can offer name a star services.

 

  • Will you catalog the same star again? No. We guarantee that Star Wishing and the Millennium Chronicle will not duplicate the listing of any star in the Millennium Chronicle, and that the official record will be maintained in The Millennium Chronicle's original online catalog of stars. Stars that have been officially cataloged cannot be renamed by our services. The catalog can be found here
