Thank Mr. Bonnell and Mr. Nemiroff for the time you spend bringing all of such awe inspiring and thought provoking photos. A few weeks ago I sent a link to a friend so they could see that days photo. She wrote back that she spent quiet a bit of time looking through the other photos and told me "this is an awesome site." It is indeed.

Is there any way to purchase a print of today's picture that would be suitable for framing? I think it would look great in my office.

I don't start a day without APOD. In my relatively mundane existence APOD lets me know well, there is a bigger picture-- and I can say, Geez, girl, stop sweating the small stuff. HAPPY, JOYOUS BIRTHDAY--Many happy returns. A gogol of thanks!

We've just viewed your very first astronomy picture, and were so excited and encouraged by the apparant advance in your lifeform that we wanted to immediately send our congratulations. We hope you'll continue with your effort. Your passion for astronomy will definitely motivate your fellow earthlings to improve your world. If you receive this message from us, you will have been at it for about 15 earth-years, so in that case, congratulations not just on the milestone, but on every moment of your passion for astronomy. Thanks for sharing that passion and for a job extremely well done!
