Today, the Bonfire team is excited to announce our beta release 🔥🎉
We’re aware that Bonfire still needs a lot of work - like ensuring it federates as expected and improving configurability, accessibility and user experience - but that’s the point: we decided to launch at this stage with the intention of building the 1.0 release as a community.

It seems like there is quite a bit of interest so I will be live-streaming (and live tooting) the total lunar eclipse through my telescope this Sunday night! 🌘🔭
If you’re interested in seeing the eclipse up close and personal, I will share a Zoom link (or similar) here that evening, and record it as well ✨
FYI the eclipse will at around 8:30pm Pacific Time, peak by 9:11pm PT, and end entirely at 11:50pm PT. The moon will turn orange-red (a “blood moon”) for 90 minutes!
Everything you need to know, to view the Total Lunar Eclipse this weekend. Total coverage will last 1 hour and 24 minutes.

I'll add mine in for the #artshare
I'm Ashe, a UK based ink illustrator
I work primarily with ink pens to create surreal fantasy art, but once I week I try my hand at pixel art and I'm currently doing a character sketch every day this month!
I'm currently working on a zine called the Skull King, but I also make prints to sell, which you can buy via my ko-fi linked in the profile.
