Have you seen a great image or video somewhere that you think would make a great APOD? Nominate it for APOD! Please post as much information here as you have about the image/video with a link to any source(s) for it you know of here, and the editors will take a look.

When posting the image itself, please do not post anything larger than a thumbnail here; please honor the copyright holder's copyright.

Thank you!

alive to the gentle breeze of communication, and please stop being such a jerk.

Mount Sharp on the Horizon
http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/msl/m ... 16032.html
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS This is a portion of the first color 360-degree panorama from NASA's Curiosity rover, made up of thumbnails, which are small copies of higher-resolution images. The mission's destination, a mountain at the center of Gale Crater called Mount Sharp, can be seen in the distance, to the left, beginning to rise up. The mountain's summit will be imaged later. The full thumbnail panorama from the Mast Camera can bee seen at PIA16029. Blast marks from the rover's descent stage are in the foreground.

I saw this one, and I like it very much! The current olympic games and astronomy on one picture! :thumb_up:
News said, the fotographer waited very long to take this picture, it would not be two pictures made in one.
I am suggesting this picture as an APOD :!:
