Product Overview

Who wouldn't want to give a start to a loved one? While this may be a beautiful gesture, the practice of selling any interstellar object (stars, planets, moons, etc.) is purely a commercial practice.

You can find more information about the IAU on their website (https://www.iau.org/)
