I'm astonished that there was any doubt about how informative APOD is (and has been) over these many years. I first 'discovered' APOD in October 1995 and have been following it's offerings ever since. It wasn't long until APOD became a site I visited with increasing frequency, and by 1997 it had become the permanent home page for my browser. For the last 15 years APOD has been the first thing I see -- and read -- every day. The information, links, and detail contained in the write-up that accompanies these images has been a wonderful education for me and has fueled an interest in astronomy that continues to this day. Without APOD, and the commentary that comes with these amazing images, I might not have ever become as fascinated with the cosmos as I am now. The story continues beyond me, for I have shared the site with friends and members of my family and nephews and nieces (and now great nephews and great nieces) and it has become an integral part of what we share together and talk about and, in short, APOD has become a component to the education of two generations (and counting) for this proud Uncle. I was thrilled when I learned that I could also receive APOD by email -- a very useful feature for me -- and I also share them widely with others who in turn share them with their children, and on and on it goes. My hat is off to the considerable efforts made by everyone behind-the-scenes at APOD. Yes, the images are remarkable. YES, we read the write-up that comes with them, and YES, we learn and grow and marvel because of your efforts and your willingness to share what you know with others. With each passing day you plant a new seed of knowledge in a garden that flourishes because of you.
