A starry celebration


Well, I was caught up in listening to Game 7 of the World Series tonight.  And when the Astros won, I decided to post a sea star picture to help their fans celebrate. Here's an orange Sunflower Star (Pycnopodia helianthoides, in the class Asteroidea) to sayCongratulations, Houston!  

P.S. Astro is Greek for "star."

Hi Jackie! When did you take this? Post-sea star wasting? If so, please let me know!

Hi, Sarah!

No, this is an older photo from 2011. I haven't seen a Sunflower Star in Northern California since summer 2014 -- see this post below for my last observation on 12 July 2014:
