Like you can choose any name you want, you can also choose any date you want. The date is the one your star gets registered with. It can either be
- in the past
- in the present
- or even in the future
We always suggest picking a date with a huge symbolic meaning like a birthday, anniversary or a wedding day. The picked date doesn't have any influence on the purchase. Even if the picked date is in the future, your star naming will still get prepared, shipped and registered immediately after receipt.
The date is always needed to register your star in the star naming registry.
