Starman has his own constellation now thanks to Belgian astronomers. As a fittingly huge homage to David Bowie, who sadly passed away last week at the age of 69 after battling cancer, astronomers have chosen to give the rock icon his own constellation. Seven stars, making up the shape of a lightning bolt - reminiscent of the makeup Bowie wore for the cover photo of his sixth studio album Aladdin Sane - have been registered by Belgian radio station Studio Brussel and the MIRA public observatory.

"It was not easy to determine the appropriate stars," said Philippe Mollet from the MIRA Observatory in a statement. "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."
