When you post, you don’t have to say who you are if you don’t want to but please at least mention your connection with astronomy - just for reference for others, since you’re likely to see all kinds here: students, graduate students, researchers, amateurs, friends who decided to stop by - what ever!
If you like what you see and read, tell your friends - if you don’t like, tell me!
