The official authority for naming stars is the IAU, which don't allow people to pay to name a star (companies that claim to name a star for a fee are actually a scam) The IAU hosted a vote a while back to name 20 stars/planets etc and I took part. Not all the names I selected were used, but some were so it's nice to know I helped to name something way out there in space!

So, this is one that didn't take much effort on my part! I ended up with a gift voucher to name a star, so went for it What did I call the little guy? Sambob, of course! 

It did make me giggle when my certificate came. I feel like an actual Guardian of the Galaxy now ... next time you're venturing through space, please drop in and visit the Sambob star.

When I had like 14 years, I was on a picnic in a river with all my family, the night appeared  and all was really dark, so there is when I decided to put myself on the green grass, then I saw at the dark sky and  I perceived the prettiest star I had ever seen in all  life, So I decided to named it Luciernagas, because it was really shine.

 When I was little my mom always said that if I only asked she'd give me the stars and it always made me feel so loved because how can anyone give you a star? Ever since then I promised myself that one day I will give my mom a star too and I did on her 43rd birthday. I love you mommy. <3

I named a star after my family. It's called, "The Marchak-Guthreau Family Star." I gave the package to my wife for Christmas, and the name is her married name, or both our last names. I made the dedication date the date of our wedding. In the note I wrote, "As long as the this star shines in the sky so will our family, it will shine just as bright for all eternity."

"My Angel on Earth"  

There are Angels God puts on this Earth Who care for us and guide us. You can feel their love and gentleness as they walk through life beside us.

They do great things for us every day they whisper in our ears, they even hold us in their hearts when we are filled with all our fears.

They are always there to give a hug and try to make us smile. They treat us with respect and love, they treat us like their child.

God blessed me with an Angel, I’m proud to call my own. She’s been with me throughout my life, been with me as I’ve grown.

She’s guided me the best she can, she’s taught me like no other, and I’m thankful I’m the lucky one who get’s to call her... MOTHER

 Oh to have a star named after you! I remember a silly radio commerical selling packets to 'name a star'. you even got a certificate and everything. Of course, it was baloney, but the idea is novel.


So- it is done- already! Annie's Quest- on Staracle- woo hoo!
