APOD is 25 Years Old Today
Welcome to the quadranscentennial
year of the Astronomy Picture of the Day. Perhaps a source of consistency for some, APOD
is still here. To help celebrate APOD's Silver Anniversary, some of APOD's TVAoTaSMD
have recorded a birthday greeting and thanks to APOD's readership in today's featured video
. Many have also highlighted a few of their favorite APOD images. In collaboration with NASA
, these and other volunteers help to inform the world, in most major world languages and over most major media platforms, of NASA and humanity's growing knowledge, active exploration, and inspiring visualizations
of the amazing astronomical universe in which we live. APOD's founders
(still alive!) would also like to offer
a sincere thank you -- not only to our TVAoTaSMD
-- but to APOD's readership
for continued interest
, support, and many gracious communications
over the years.

Happy birthday, and thank you!

Without eyes we cannot see. Without maps travel is perilous. This gives us the two entangled. May it become a centanarian fixture for humanity.
You've been the first thing I've looked at every morning for years. Thank you for giving me so much pleasure.

To all who have worked tirelessly over the years ensuring that this site maintains its brilliant momentum as well as the myriad of participants who have submitted and contributed very informative images and words for all us Fellow-Earthlings to consume I transmit a very hearty THANKYOU.
First of all, congratulation for your birthday.
I look everyday the pictures from the beginning. It is the best easy site of the world where someone share really the very nice pictures.
I hope that in 25 years, the site will be always present !
Continue to dream us with these pictures
Thank you so much
A fan of Astronomy
Heartiest congratulations to APOD for completing 25 years as a shining example of everything that is good about the internet. However, I think it's a year late in welcoming the quadranscentennial year, given that today is the start of the 26th year... Today is, however, the quadranscentennial (25th) anniversary!
Happy 25th birthday to us who try to visit every day! Thank you, editors and contributors!

Happy 25th Birthday. I visit APOD most days. Here is the first APOD picture I saved from back October, 2002 (if my notes are correct). Over a hundred more since then.

Happy Birthday, APOD! Thank you for starting off my day, every day, with images of wonder and curiosity!
Congratulations and Happy Birthday
As a college student back in the '80's I was inspired by my astronomy professor. I check apod website first thing every day thanks to him, and you.
Keep up the good work!
I start my day with a leisurely view of APOD. Always uplifting.

The APOD image of Mars from July 16, 1995
got me hooked. Until I got flatscreen monitors, it was my background image at work and at home.
