So much beauty, so much knowledge, so much joy. For free. Every day I marvel, every day I learn, every day I am in awe.

Thank all of you for spreading the wonder around the earth. I love you all.

Thank you thank you for a daily dose of beauty and science! I’ve been watching since getting my first PC in the nineties. I also audited Roberts’s Astronomy class on iTunes U and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Congratulations on your Silver Anniversary. APOD is my home page when I access the internet ... and has been for more than 20 years. Please keep it going forever.

Well congratulations Robert and Jerry and your vast and unknown list of volunteers and contributors. This is a major undertaking, 25 years and no rest.
This site has been a very significant force in spreading knowledge of astronomy among the general population (as well as countless screen savers) over the years. We owe you and your supporters a sincere and heartfelt thank you for this site.

If I were told that the whole internet has to be switched off, and I would be given the chance to save a single web page, APOD would be my choice without hesitation. Congratulations for your great work.

Congratulations ... and in all that time, you still haven't posted an image from the JWST ! :-)
( Well, I suppose these could count: https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap100312.html; https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap170318.html )

Seriously, what an amazing legacy is here. More than any thanks I can express.

Thank you so much for the greetings I receive from you every morning. The first thing I see when I pull up the internet is you. Sometimes when I'm working late, your newest post is the last thing I see when I go to bed. It's comforting to know that you're still there.

Thanks for 25 years and may there be many more.

Congrats! I checked APOD daily for years, then got away from it for 2-3 years, then got caught up a few weeks ago after checking 15 APODs per day for several weeks while off work from the pandemic. I'm back to checking it daily now!

Many years ago I was in hospital for a bit over a year, the first website I visited once I was back home and had online access was APOD - my every day starts with your awesome site! Thanks.
