Name the next star discovered after David Bowie

This petition had 8,600 supporters


In the wake of the tragic news of David Bowie's death I think it would be a fitting tribute to name the next star discovered after David Bowie.

I know the official way of naming stars does not allow for this but there could be a common name much like our historical constellations have common names.

David Bowie - Starman

There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it
Cause he knows it's all worthwhile
