When a star is missing from Celestia, you have to create a STar Catalog file to define it. It's a plain text file which specifies the star's name and characteristics. You can create it using your favorite text editor (e.g. Notepad or Emacs).

For details, see https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Celestia/STC_File
