Origin of APOD[edit]

APOD originated with and was created by Robert Nemiroff and Jerry Bonnell in 1995, as has been documented since the beginning of APOD. John Kressel has recently claimed that the idea for APOD originated with him. His claim has been refuted by both Robert Nemiroff and Jerry Bonnell.

Links to mirrors[edit]

In the edit text, there is a comment about APOD mirrors, and not adding "them all" as a link. Why should there be any mirror on there? I think it would be a lot better only having the original APOD and the list of mirrors linked. --yanneman 09:43, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

However, most of the original content is now available on Perhaps it is worth updating the links on this page ?

Website title or name of the picture.[edit]

Is Astronomy Picture of the Day the name of the website, or a description of the image, or both. Can the two be distinguished? --SmokeyJoe (talk) 00:39, 23 December 2013 (UTC)
