David Bowie now has a constellation of stars named after him thanks to a Belgian radio station and star observatory. MIRA Public Observatory and Studio Brussels have named seven stars in the form of a lightning bolt to honor the Thin White Duke who passed away on Sunday.
Philippe Mollet from MIRA explained the inspiration for the constellation in a statement obtained by Pitchfork: "It was not easy to determine the appropriate stars. Studio Brussels asked us to give Bowie a unique place in the galaxy. Referring to his various albums, we chose seven stars - Sigma Librae, Spica, Alpha Virginis, Zeta Centauri, SAA 204 132, and the Beta Sigma Octantis Trianguli Australis - in the vicinity of Mars. The constellation is a copy of the iconic Bowie lightning and was recorded at the exact time of his death."

You can log onto the website Stardust for Bowie and name a song within the constellation.
