The Google April Fool’s train continues with the announcement of “Gmail Blue.” Yes, it’s a version of Google’s email service where everything is the color blue.

APOD: Flying Over the Earth at Night (2013 Mar 31) Video Credit: Gateway to Astronaut Photography, NASA; Compilation: David Peterson (YouTube); Music: Freedom Fighters (Two Steps from Hell) http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130331.html http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FG0fTKAqZ5g Explanation: Many wonders are visible when flying over the Earth at night. A compilation of such visual spectacles was captured recently from the International Space Station (ISS) and set to rousing music. Passing below are white clouds, orange city lights, lightning flashes in thunderstorms, and dark blue seas. On the horizon is the golden haze of Earth's thin atmosphere, frequently decorated by dancing auroras as the video progresses. The green parts of auroras typically remain below the space station, but the station flies right through the red and purple auroral peaks. Solar panels of the ISS are seen around the frame edges. The ominous wave of approaching brightness at the end of each sequence is just the dawn of the sunlit half of Earth, a dawn that occurs every 90 minutes. http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/ http://www.youtube.com/user/Bitmeizer Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130331 Starship Asterisk* • On This Day in APOD http://asterisk.apod.com/view_retro.php?date=0331

APOD: Moon or Frying Pan? (2013 Apr 01) Images Credit: Frying Pan (Copyrighted): Christopher Jonassen; Moon: NASA http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130401.html Explanation: Which is which? Of the two images shown above, one is a moon in our Solar System, while the other is the bottom of frying pan. We are not making this up -- can you tell a pan from a planetoid? Think you got it? To find the answer click here. OK, but there are more! That's right: you, your family, friends, neighbors, and local elected officials can all play "Moon or Frying Pan" with these other image pairs, too. As everyone knows, the fundamental underlying reason why moons and frying pans appear similar is -- OK, we at APOD aren't sure either. And if you've been fooled, don't fret -- just remember that it's OK because today is April Fool's Day. http://www.christopherjonassen.com/ Starship Asterisk* Quiz • Moon or Frying Pan? http://asterisk.apod.com/viewtopic.php?t=30890 Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130401 Starship Asterisk* • On This Day in APOD http://asterisk.apod.com/view_retro.php?date=0401
