Freddie Mercury gets asteroid named after him

This video says about itself:
Brian May announces Asteroid 17473 Freddiemercury 04/09/2016
This video announcement was first shown at the Freddie Mercury 70th Birthday Party in Montreux, Switzerland, Sunday 4 September 2016.
In announcing Asteroid 17473 Freddie Mercury, Brian May said:
“I’m happy to be able to announce that the International Astronomical Union‘s Minor Planet Center has today designated Asteroid 17473, discovered 1991, in Freddie’s name, timed to honour his 70th birthday. Henceforth this object will be known as Asteroid 17473 Freddiemercury. Published in the September 4th announcements of the Minor Planet Center, operating out of the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, this announcement is to recognise Freddie’s outstanding influence in the world.
From Science News:
Rock star Freddie Mercury now has his own space rock
The late musician is the most recent celebrity to have an asteroid named after him
By Christopher Crockett
5:49pm, September 9, 2016
Freddie Mercury, the late lead singer for the band Queen, once sang: “I’m a shooting star leaping through the sky.” Turning lyrics into reality, the rock legend now has a hunk of space rock named after him. The International Astronomical Union has renamed asteroid 1991 FM3 as (17473) Freddiemercury. Bandmate Brian May, who has a Ph.D. in astrophysics and his own eponymous asteroid, announced the change online September 4, one day before what would have been Mercury’s 70th birthday. The asteroid was discovered in 1991, the same year that Mercury died.
The asteroid named after Mercury (no relation to the planet) sits in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, and the 3.4-kilometer-wide rock loops around the sun once every 3.69 years. Mercury joins a long list of celebrity musicians to be immortalized with a small piece of the solar system, including Louie Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, David Bowie and all of the Beatles (John, Paul, George and Ringo).
