David Bowie’s 28th studio album, “Blackstar” is something quite out of the ordinary—and this time, it has nothing to do with the music.

The pop singer, who died earlier this year, left something amazing behind in his final album.

An Imgur user discovered this week that if you leave the vinyl album’s gatefold out in the sun (not the actual record), its star becomes a galaxy, swarming with stars.

According to Independent, the album was released to fans as a “parting gift.” However, before Bowie’s death, he had already begun working on a follow-up album.

“At that late stage, he was planning the follow-up to ‘Blackstar’, and I was thrilled,” Producer Tony Visconti told Rolling Stone.

Bowie’s “Blackstar” is the best-selling vinyl album for the first quarter of 2016 on the UK’s Official Vinyl Chart.
