Thanks and congratulations Robert and Jerry. APOD has been a part of my morning ritual for many years. At least ten... I wish you another 15 years of success and happiness.

There's a link in the text of this APOD which gets you to a Wiki page where Vigintennial is defined.

Thanks Rob. Silly me for not clicking on everything. Instead of the Vigintennial, I'd rather be able to be like Methusalah and see the Nonacentennial.
Or better yet, I'd just opt for the Bimillenial. Pehaps by then the technology would be such that we could also see things from the inside out??

I view APOD at work during lunch. You have brightened many Monday-morning commutes with the thought of "Three APODS to view today!" Thank you for what you do.

Hello.
Hearty congratulations on your birthday! I am a daily visitor of your site since last 10 years. You have done a wonderful job in popularising astronomy. It is always said that a single picture is more effective than 1000 words. You have proved it conclusively.
I am an associate professor of physics (from India) and a populariser of astronomy. So... best wishes from India. Keep it up.

I check APOD daily for the last umpteen years, except when I am out of internet range as I was this week (diving on a live-aboard). I got back late last night and while reviewing the APOD's that i missed came upon both "Starry Night" and your 15th Anniversary images. I have bookmarked both for future pleasure. Keep up the good work.

I have been a fan of APOD for probably at least 15 of those twenty years, and I am daily amazed at the beauty and wonder of our universe. Thank you so much for posting such gorgeous and inspiring pictures for all of us to broaden our minds and open our eyes a little more to the fantastic creation that is our home. :D :D :D

Fantastic Job. What a relief and a sense of wonder for someone my age and curiosity level.
KEEP IT UP.
