Are you associated with NASA/IAU?

We are not, the only institution that has the right to assign stars a scientific name is the International Astronomical Union (IAU) who only name stars for scientific purposes and will not name a star after an individual by request, and so the service we provide is the closest one can get to naming a star for themselves or a loved one.
If you’re interested in learning more about the IAU and all the fantastic work they do, check out our IAU blog post.
