Registered just to respond to the complainers. It certainly wasn't one of the best APODs because I'm not a big fan of dancing, but it's one day of inconvenience to you for whatever work the editors do for free, 365 days a year. Boo hoo.

This is anthropology, not astronomy. So APOD has become the Anthropology Picture Of the Day.

prance (v.) late 14c., originally of horses, of unknown origin, perhaps related to Middle English pranken "to show off," from Middle Dutch pronken "to strut, parade" (see prank); or perhaps from Danish dialectal prandse "to go in a stately manner." Klein suggests Old French paravancier.

Could our poster have been trying to show a correlation between happy humas dancing around the earth and happy galaxys dancing around the universe?
I believe you misspelled "hummus".

Hi, just a reminder that it's against the rules to post profanity-laden tirades. Only polite tirades are permitted.
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.

How about a little bit of Shakespeare? :D 🌼
William Shakespeare wrote:

"A knave, a rascal, an eater of broken meats; a base, proud, shallow, beggarly, three-suited, hundred-pound, filthy worsted-stocking knave; a lily-livered, action-taking, whoreson, glass-gazing, super-serviceable, finical rogue; one-trunk-inheriting slave; one that wouldst be a bawd in way of good service, and art nothing but the composition of a knave, beggar, coward, pander, and the son and heir to a mongrel bitch: one whom I will beat into clamorous whining if thou deni'st the least syllable of thy addition. ("King Lear", II.2)

So there is a planet in the solar system where there is life, and it is as exotic and happy as expected.
