Too bad Mars is just coming back around the other side of the sun and a good 9 months away from good observing position.

There are other NOT SAFE FOR LIFE photos of that room..  I'm not posting them here.. I forget Farks rules on that even if you label them NSFW..  But if you want to see the asshole laying in a pool of brain matter..  They're easy enough to find

I don't have to travel; it's localized entirely within my kitchen.
