I can’t think of a better way to honor David Bowie than by naming a constellation after him. The world continues to mourn his passing. This musician meant so much to so many people and even if you knew nothing about him, you knew that he loved space just by listening to his music. He seemed more alien than human and left us with so much.
Now a constellation shaped in his iconic lightning bolt has been named after David Bowie. Perfection.
The MIRA Public Observatory in Brussels, Belgium collaborated with a local radio station to register this constellation in Bowie’s name. The constellation is made up of seven stars that are located close to Mars. Again very fitting. The constellation is an exact copy of the iconic Bowie lightning bolt and it was recorded at the time of his death. Much planning went into selecting these seven stars, Sigma Librae, Spica, Alpha Virginis, Zeta Centauri, SAA 204 132, and the Beta Sigma Octantis Trianguli Australis.
Now maybe Studio Brussels is using this for publicity, but even so, this is the perfect tribute to David Bowie. Now you can look up in the night sky and remember the legendary artist. We will never see another like him.
