Stars in the Hood™
Name a Star
Imagine having your own name added to the stars. In Stars in the NeighborHood™, you can add or replace names of any star you choose. In this example, the current "Focus" star has the name "Tau Ceti" (short form "Tau Cet"). Many stars have only catalog numbers. Tau Ceti is also known as "HD 10700," "HR 509," "Gliese 71," "SAO 147986." But say you wanted to name it "Nancy's Fav." To name a star, first click the "Add Notes" button.
