From my calculations, the star HIP 28270 A was overhead at 2:30 pm June 17 in Pasadena, Texas. Ziekal, this is your star.
This is a massive star, type B9, that is part of a double system in the constellation Auriga. At magnitude 8.5 it probably can not be seen with the unaided eye. This is because this particular star is so distant, 701 Light Years.
The light we see from HIP 28270 A left that star 701 years ago. That’s about the time Dante published his Divine Comedy.
Spectral Type B stars are hot and blue, and produce lots of ultraviolet radiation. B stars are massive and brilliant. They fuse their nuclear fuel at such a fast rate that they do not live very long, as stars go.
HIP 28270 A is a bright star, but its distance makes it appear dim to us. It’s Absolute Magnitude is 1.59 If it were only 32.6 Light Years away, it would be one of our brightest stars.
HIP 28270 A is highest in the Buffalo night sky December thru March. Its coordinates are 5 hours 59 minutes 31 seconds, +29 degrees 57 minutes 39 seconds
As you can tell on the HR Diagram above, B stars are more rare than Type G stars. Our Sun is a Type G star. HIP 28270 A is not a White Dwarf (bottom left corner of the HR Diagram) nor a giant or supergiant (along the top.) This star is on the main sequence, that sweeping diagonal line from top left to bottom right, that contains stars that are happily fusing hydrogen into helium in their cores. When HIP 28270 A runs out of nuclear fuel, it may die in what we call a Supernova Explosion.
Companies and individuals have no authority to sell stars or sell naming rights for stars, The International Astronomical Union has the authority to name objects, usually after the discoverer. But if you were born in Pasadena Texas around 2:30 in the afternoon on June 17, this star was directly overhead. I can’t give you this star, it’s been your star all along.
