I don't know how the APOD guys do it! All of these, plus these recent submissions, and these, and these, and ... and ... well, you get the idea!

As usual, these are all excellent. I agree with izzyhochberg -- any one of them would make a great APOD. For me the biggest WOW goes to the Messenger image of the Earth and moon -- enlightening, educational, beautiful. Thanks again!

Agreed, all those images are fantastic, and 'pic two' should only remain for customers :O)

I have that picture downloaded from APOD some time ago, but it was so nice to see it tops. Such an endearing picture from so far away. |Looks like a Parent and a child. It has for me, an endless appeal.
