Rock legend David Bowie who passed away on January 10 now has its own constellation in the sky: a lightning bolt-shaped constellation shaped with seven stars.
Seven stars shaping a lightning bolt in the night sky and "in the vicinity of Mars", Can Bowie tribute be possibly even better? Two Belgian astronauts from Public Observatory Mira Studio Brussels actually came up with this idea according to Pitchfork magazine. They stated that they have discovered seven stars shaped like a lightning bolt, "just like it appeared on Bowie's face of Alladin Sane cover album released in 1973".
Besides, the constellation initiators created Stardust for Bowie website where fans can add their favourite Bowie songs to a Google Sky representation of the constellation.
