    APOD on April Fools' Day

    Today's APOD picture (http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap120401.html) does not strike me as one of the funnier APOD's for April 1. This one is my favorite, although like all my other favorites, it will vary with time. I'm not doing this as a poll because there are too many choices.

    Maybe the humor is too subtle for me. Anybody have any favorite April 1 APODs?

    I don't think the Moon one is funny. It has a reseau grid on it? Hubble doesn't have a reseau. They could have at least claimed it was Ranger (or Lunar Orbiter?).
