Belgian astronomers have gazed skyward to find a fitting way to pay tribute to David Bowie following the rock legend’s death at 69, dedicating a constellation to the self-proclaimed “Starman.” The constellation boasts seven stars that, when connected, form the iconic lightning bolt seen on the cover of Bowie’s Aladdin Sane. The interstellar tribute, which appropriately features celestial bodies in the vicinity of Mars, was engineered by Belgium’s MIRA Public Observatory and the radio station Studio Brussels, PSFK reports.
