APOD Turns Eighteen
The first APOD
appeared eighteen years ago today, on 1995 June 16.
Although garnering only 14 pageviews on that day,
are proud to estimate that
served over one billion
space-related images over the past eighteen years.
That early beginning, along with a nearly unchanging format, has allowed APOD to
be a consistent and familiar site on a web frequently filled with change.
Many people don't know, though, that APOD is now
into many major languages.
We again thank our readers, astrophotographers, and
for their continued support, but ask that any
potentially congratulatory e-mail go this year to the volunteers all around the world
's captions daily, many times with considerable effort.
images are featured in the
above spectacular collage visualizing APOD
as a classic film reel, submitted by an
enthusiast skilled in digital image manipulation.
