Star Naming Guide: Christmas Stars

Ideal Viewing Times for Your Gift Star

When you purchase a star for Christmas, one thing to keep in mind -- that will help a new stargazer explore the sky -- is the seasonal visibility of the constellations and star systems. You could start by researching the star online or by using Name A Star Live's Virtual Planetarium™ software and locate when and where the star is most visible in the night sky.

Another thing to do when you name a star for Christmas is to pinpoint the location of the gift star and see if it’s close to any constellations that are in prime viewing season during the winter. If you can’t see the gift star very well until later in the year, you can at least find the general area and explore its neighbors. The night sky is always full of wonders. To find out when the star is visible from your location click on the Constellation Calendar located inside the My Sky section of the Name A Star Live website.
