D'oh!

I guess the link in the post above is to the actual, current, APOD. I suppose that I have to wait a day for the current APOD to be archived before posting. Is this correct? I am willing to post the APOD every day (for the most part, of course), but obviously I could use any tips from the veterans.

Re-post for yesterday's APOD:
