When he died at the start of this year, David Bowie left the world with one final gift - his incredible final album, Blackstar. Now, it looks as though it’s a gift that keeps on giving.

One Imgur user has discovered that if you leave the vinyl album’s gatefold (not the actual vinyl, obviously, that would be foolish) out in the sun, the black star turns into a sea of stars.

It’s quite a beautiful hidden bonus.
