Thank you to both of you, any "behind-the-scenes" associates we may not get to hear about, and to everyone who supports this venture for the pleasure you bring to us each day. I hope that there has been some succession planning, both to ensure that the site is maintained and that new features continue.
Congratulations, and keep up the great work!
You guys are the best! I start every day with a look at your website. It is such a feast for the eyes and soul. It puts things into perspective for me. I often share the best photos with my friends.
Thanks for all you do. Keep up the good work and a big Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday. I start my day with APOD most mornings. Keeps my little world in perspective, and sometimes I even allow my self to learn something. Thanks for all you efforts. JNH

Thanks for all the effort and creativity to sustain such a fascinating site. You've brightened my mornings for years.
I've been with you at least 14 of those years. One late night I went through every photo in the archives!!!
Mind blowing! Thanks for being a constant source of beauty and amazement.....
APOD is awesome!! Thanks always!!

Happy Birthday- APOD - at 15, I'd expect some adolescent surprises!
In fact, the digitized Vermeer today was indeed unexpected in the extreme. Very creative. I see from other comments that I'm not the only one by far who has APOD as homepage. Thanks for such a great way to start my online session each day!!

APOD has been my home page since about June 1996. The first thing I do on every new computer is set my homepage to APOD - Like you said, there is nothing like a little consistency in life.
Over the years when I have been working with others in my office I open my browser and the first thing everyone sees is APOD. Many times that day's image has sparked some kind of conversation - could be anything from "What the heck is that" all the way to "That picture is beautiful"
I hope to see APOD for many, many more years. You are an invaluable asset to the web community. Thank You.
Happy Birthday APOD...of course only a mere 4.599015 parsecs from where you started
Congratulations and thanks to you how make this available to us every day. This is my home page and one that I look forward to viewing and studying every day. Please, keep up the good work!
Happy Birthday APOD! Each and every day I am treated to the most wonderful and awe-inpsiring photos plus an informative description. Thank you.
Thankyou! For almost 14 years now I have enjoyed APOD. And they say there are no constants in the universe.......
happy birthday gentlemen, and thank you for bringing amazing images - and plenty of learning - to my desktop for many years. Those of us who spend our days in front of a screen have been uplifted by your work to bring to us images of beauty and power (and science!) from beyond our ken.
I've been following every day for around 12 years. #1 site on the web for me.
Helps me to not forget where we really live.
This is awesome! I love it! I counted all the little squares of the width and height. 10,560 images! Can you believe that??! That's insane! I wonder how they compose it all? Nice job APOD!

Thank you so very much for your daily offerings - all of them eye-openers. Today's portrait is exceptionally super!! Happy Birthday, and many more to come.
I have looked at the APOD every morning since... sometime in the last century. I changed it to my landing page when I suffered depression. (Much less depressing than the news)
I include the link in my email signature.
It is a simple, beautiful, easy education.
Thank you and all who submit.
Congratulations APOD! Your efforts bring me joy everyday, and I greatly appreciate your work to continue bringing the joy of astrophysics to the masses.

Can we have a version with a link to the relevant APOD on each mini-image please? (A job which would keep someone in work for the next 15 years!)
I feel a headache coming on.
Unfortunately, the mosaic software doesn't tell me which of the APODs it actually used out of the 5,504 I gave it to choose from.
And a Happy Birthday
from me too. It has been a great privilege to supply the image used today.

Happy birthday. I concur with other readers enthusiastic endorsement of APOD and appreciate the (occasionally) whimsical editorial input.
Thank you for the beauty and the connection to our amazing universe. What a precious gift it is each and every day!

Your page is permanently locked in my browser, and I enjoy it every day.
It seems to me, as has been noted, that today's image was made (or was commissioned) for the second aniversary, but it still is a great image you have posted.
Congratulations, and many more years of wonders, please.
