David Bowie Recieves Own Constellation

David Bowie will forever be remembered within the stars. Belgian radio station Studio Brussel and American observatory MIRA partnered to register an entire constellation in memory of the late musician. Bowie fans can write Bowie memories and lyrics onto Google Sky digitization of the constellation, which is in the shape of the lightning bolt made iconic by the Aladdin Sane album cover. Referring to his various albums, these seven stars were chosen — 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.

The constellation is one of many David Bowie tributes from the past week. Comedian Fred Armisen gave a heartfelt speech on Saturday Night Live. Astronaut Chris Hadfield sent his love from space. Concerts and memorials sprung up across London, where the artist was born and raised.
