It’s been nineteen days since the late, great David Bowie passed away on January 10th and our hearts are still healing. But it’s comforting to know (in a very surreal, bizarre way we think Bowie would totally approve of) the Starman’s music legacy lives on – along with his iconic lightning bolt.
On Friday, Sydney, Australia witnessed a wild storm complete with – you guessed it – lightning. At one point, a vibrant bolt streaked across the sky and hit the Sydney Tower, making for an incredible snapshot that was impressively captured by a man named Mike Morrow:

After all, it seems that the superstar was a believer in symbols and signs, considering his last music video, which served as a beautiful goodbye to a world that deeply, truly loved him. There’s also the last account he followed on Twitter before his passing:
While we miss Bowie terribly and still can’t believe he’s gone, at least his prolific music (and lightning bolt) legacy continues to illuminate the world. Literally.
