DDB Brussels has reported that Belgian radio station Studio Brussels and MIRA Public Observatory have honoured David Bowie with a constellation in the night sky. Together, they registered seven stars in the shape of the iconic lightning bolt that Bowie has over his face on the cover of his 1973 album Aladdin Sane. Studio Brussels and MIRA have also created a website called Stardust for Bowie where fans can add their favourite Bowie songs to a Google Sky representation of the constellation.

Philippe Mollet from MIRA explained the inspiration for the constellation:

 

“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”.

My name is kira and I study Media and Communications. I live in the beautiful and wonderfully diverse city of Brighton. I've loved writing since a young child when I would write poems about my goldfish and leaves I found on the floor. (I'm hoping my writing style has slightly progressed since then!) I love listening to live music and try to go to as many gigs as possible. Follow my social media if you want to know more!
