BREAKING! Authorship Snippets Disappear from Google Search

UPDATE 5:08 PM EDT: THEY'RE BACK! must've been a glitch. We're seeing authorship results in the SERPS again. Whew!

+Barry Schwartz just alerted me that ALL Google Authorship snippets have disappeared from search results in the last few hours. 

All of the results below had authorship photos this morning.

We've keeping an eye to see if this is temporary or permanent. Expect updates!

UPDATE: Users are confirming this extends beyond the US. Also, authorship snippets are still showing in logged in search for Google+ posts by people in your network, but that appears to be it.
