Your Birthday Star:

Your birthday star has the common name Giclas 051-015. It is called NS 0829+2646 in the NStars database.

It has visual magnitude 14.9 meaning that you would need a telescope to see this star. It is marked in the center of this star chart, at celestial coordinates (J2000 equinox):

Right ascension 8:29:49.5
Declination 26:46:37

This star is 11.8 light years away, which means that the light we see from it today set off on its journey at about the same time that you were born. Come back in a month or two and your birthday star may change, as the light from more distant stars reaches Earth.
