Welcome to the ATNF Daily Astronomy Picture (ADAP), brought to you by staff and users of the Australia Telescope National Facility (ATNF). Our aim is to present science and engineering results, research highlights from recent publications, technical updates, telescope pictures, conference summaries, etc.

Our site was inspired by the fabulous Astronomy Picture of the Day - @APOD and the ASTRON/Jive Daily Image - @dailyimage .

We welcome all ATNF users to submit an image related to our facilities (Parkes, ATCA, Mopra, ASKAP and LBA), together with a brief description and credits. The submission form is here. Pending review, the submission will be added to the queue.

The ATNF Daily Astronomy Picture (ADAP) was created in Dec 2014 by Baerbel Koribalski and Simon Johnston. Over 800 ADAPs have been published over the first three years (365 in 2015 and ~250 in 2016 and 2017 each). Vince McIntyre and Nathan Pope are acknowledged for their dedicated technical support. The ADAP is currently curated by Phil Edwards.

Today's ADAP can be found * here *. All previous ADAPs are stored in the archive.
