  • (2021-05-15) Sean O'Neill: I really enjoy the variety of pictures it shows. It's just images of stars or nebulae, there are skyscapes from the surface of Mars and plenty from Earth as well.
  • (2018-09-03) Rahil Gupta: Love the extension. It shows new pics everyday, with an optional commentary on the pic. Helps me start the day with a brief tryst with my first love every single day.

Latest issues

  • (2017-02-28, v:1.32) Alex Ryan: APOD not working!
    I haven't been seeing any new pictures in the extension although there are new pictures on the website! I really like APOD, please fix!
  • (2017-01-12, v:1.32) Francois Rivard: Picture not updating
    I think the problem is with the apod website; about two weeks ago they changed the way the image is presented to make it clickable to have a full resolution image. This broke the way the extension is extracting the image. The element it is looking for no longer exists. Probably a simple update of the extension is needed.
  • (2017-01-10, v:1.32) John McCabe: Still on vacation?
    Im not seeing any updated pictures, just like everyone else... Thanks!
  • (2017-01-06, v:1.32) Gail Marshall: Picture has not updated for about 2 weeks
    I am experiencing the same things as described by several others. Have tried to find the problem but no luck I enjoy seeing the images and learning from the text so would like to know how to solve the problem.
  • (2017-01-04, v:1.32) James Prince: Picture not updating
    I've been using this extension for a long time, but the image hasn't updated since Dec. 20th, 2016. I've been staring at the Sharpless 308 Star Bubble for two weeks. This has been confirmed on multiple computers running the latest version of Chrome. Great extension by the way!
  • (2016-11-11, v:1.32) Jeanne Rizzo: Picture not updating
    I've been getting the same picture daily; unchanging.
  • (2015-12-09, v:1.32) Callum Chalk: New picture not loading
    Installed this yesterday and it looks, feels and works great. Today though, the same picture is showing, despite APOD having been updated. Any ideas?
  • (2015-03-07, v:1.32) Jeffrey McClain: APOD for home page?
    Could you please add an option to set the astronomy pic. of the day as the homepage? I'd prefer to set it as my homepage, not my new tab.
