Picturing Gravitational Waves

NASA must have a significant announcement to make in the press conference they will be holding later this morning. As a Facebook friend pointed out, this is probably the first time that they have ever taken the step of replacing the Astronomy Picture of the Day with a text placeholder. I am including that placeholder image in this post below. The name of the image file is also significant – they called it “DrumRoll.jpg”!

It is expected that the announcement will confirm the observation of gravitational waves. An exciting development!

What do you think the Astronomy Picture of the Day will be that will appear on the APOD website after the press conference?
