NASA's becoming that really awesome older friend who's way too comfortable with his own decline and death.

Didn't realize that APOD has been around so long since I first started checking them out in the mid 90's. I hope they continue long after I've pined for the fjords.

But they still can't explain this freaky shiat happening right in our own back yards:

Hum, lacks the "are the lights flying in formation and have they just turned 90° abruptly without slowing down?"

/ saw that long ago, while observing the Hale Bopp comet
// I'm not saying it was aliens but...

What if the astronauts aren't waving at me but instead giving me the finger?

It means they want you to put your pants back on.

They could be totally pressing their butts against the windows and you wouldn't be able to tell.

No 'weather balloon' option.  Hmmm...

So what were those things NASA was saying were weather balloons?

Swamp gas reflecting off of Venus' atmosphere.

No swamp gas either?  NASA is really slacking on their alien denial.

Military experiments.

No, seriously.

Wow, good one, I'd totally forgot about those HG loons.

Man, the sheer awesomeness of the APOD allows me to enjoy stuff like this. I know that tomorrow there will be something else that will blow me away. Unfortunately, some of their Twitter followers just can't handle it.

If I ever find myself on the ISS, I'm totally doing that in the cupola.

Apparently I saw a glowing green artificial satellite approach for a seemingly abrupt landing once in the mid 80s.

Now instead of calling it a UFO, I can call it a UAS. Still don't know what the hell it was though. It was green. It had a visible area (not a point), I would say slightly smaller than the moon.. It seemed round. It moved in a seemingly straight line, downward at about a 20 degree angle. It was a bright blue-sky day. I didn't hear it inside a moving car. Where I presume it impacted (beyond my line of sight, at least a couple miles off in the woods), there didn't seem to be any explosions or anything. There were no follow-up reports that I could ever find. My mom refused to stop the car to let me look for it. My dad and my brother in another car ahead of us saw it too.

If I did this right, it went that a'way.

Oh gods, astronaut-butt skin oil. That's gonna smear.
