Found 11th May
My sister in law's girlfriends' niece is about to be christened so she bought her a star. Never really knew this existed but apparently it's real and you get the coordinates of your star too. Going to reserve my name now before anyone else does!

The gift set looks nice and for the price it's worth the sentimental value: http://starlistings.co.uk/name-a-star-gift-sets/9-name-a-star-star-plaque-gift-set.html#/age_of_recipient-adult/choose_a_constellation-andromeda_the_princess/extra_copies-none/occasion-birthday

Not really a deal so to speak so I posted this here instead but still hot!

it's a con / scam

however, my acre on the moon is totally legit

its a really lovely idea and its nice of you to post it, BUT, i feel horrible as im gonna pee on your fire,
its a bit of a con as although the company probably wont resell your star to anyone else, other companies all over the world will sell the exact same star ?
the problem with a star is, no one actually owns them ? so all you are getting is a star chart with an arrow on it and a certificate.
its a lovely thought but a bit of a con

​do you want to sell it mate as i would like to build on it

More stars in the sky than grains of sand on earth so we could all have one to ourselves. Lovely gift even if no human ever goes there.

I thought of that as I was posting! Don't worry. Hopefully there's a regulatory body that actually keeps track of star ownership. You could go further and say what if they're already owned by the "natives" should there be any... *xfiles theme*

​ You want to build on a star? Hope you have really good air conditioning sorted.

Twinkle, twinkle, named a star,
Bought a chart to see where you are.
Even though the price is high,
Enough to make a remoaner cry.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
Just a scam, that's what you are!

Is this a prank

W0t you gonna do if an alien is already defending it when you want to collect it?

W0t if its all burnt out when you get there?

How you gonna live on a star anyway, its hot.

Best off investing in a house in a Liverpool suburb that goes for nout, that way they can live somewhere!

All I got in life was a star and state school education

how do they make a profit ?

This is all very well but what happens when the inhabitants of said star system find out?

If you're lucky they may laugh it off as one of those silly thing primitive life forms like to do but on the other hand they could take grave offence and dispatch a fleet of ships to teach us a lesson for our insolence, the survivors would then remember you as the person responsible for almost wiping out the human race.

Put the 58 quid in a Junior ISA, it's safer.

We did something similar in memory of my deceased mother. We had a tree planted in Ireland with her name on it. I think it only cost €35.

Utter waste of money.

I sent my cat's name into space instead a few years ago. Or something. I can't remember what the website was called, but it was free.

Looks like there's still some sort of free version:
