Welcome to space.com, Too bad they didn't ask here before "buying" the star.
I hate to tell you, it is a total fraud. You cannot "buy" a star.
If you'd like to find the star that the company took your money by "selling" it to you, give us the star name and we can point you to the right spot in the sky.
Most likely, if you want to see it you will need a large telescope and some practice looking around with it.

Also, please do not write in all capital letters. In polite company, that is considered shouting and is not appreciated.

In very small letters at the bottom of the main screen:

International Star Registry star naming is not recognized by the scientific community.
Your stars name is reserved in International Star Registry records only..

If you are lazy, like me, you can use my telescope. It can show pretty much any star that is known. It can do while you are comfortable in your chair, in a heated and cooled home. It can show deepsky objects with a clarity that is usually only available from really sophisticated instruments. It won't replace regular telescopes for enthusiasts however. Not a chance. It won't show you comets however. And it will never replace MeteorWayne and his henchmen in looking for incomers. But it is free.

Jason doesn't mention how much his friend 'paid' for this star, does he? Come on Wayne, are people REALLY that naive? I would love to know what his friend actually paid for this, um, ...real estate.
Yeah it'd be great to have a 'sun-deck' closely overlooking the surface of the star. The deck sure as heck better not be built out of wood though. Talk about 'Yella Wood'. :lol:
