Someone saw Mastodon open on my tablet today and said "Looks like you're up to something fun!"

TFW you recognize the artist: folks don't steal art from creators that should have been paid for and repost it here

I do this on the birdsite from time to time so I'll do this here too: Ask an astronomer! Ask me astronomy questions until 21:00 Mountain Standard Time!
