AAPOD, Amateur Astronomy Picture of the Day, has a code which shows the daily picture:
Amateur Astronomy Picture of the Day

Good idea Alice. I've merged this and the AAPOD threads but think I'll leave the LPOD with the honour of having its own thread. It being a lunar forum and all. :)

;D ;D ;D

I just love not having to make the decision myself. Not that I don't love moderating the galaxies but it is nice not to have any more work to take on - and instead just relax and know that wonderful people like Jules will do a perfect job! 8)

I agree, LPOD should have its own thread here. Are we going to have a "crater of the day" board in the future? ;D

Great thread.

Very nice image, Jules.

That's a neat zoom feature.

The Pleiades was the first constellation I found. I would look at it as a child, seeing the nebulosity around the stars. Nice to see them together with the Moon.

It took awhile to find the sun ray.
look in the smaller of the two largest craters in the inset picture.
