This is your day if you like to look up into space, either through a telescope or via the naked eye. There is a lot to see but the more trained you are, the more you will actually see. Most people just see a lot of stars, the moon and occasionally a random planet but there is so much more. Today was created by Doug Berger of the North California Astronomical Association back in 1973. Who knows what surprises might be out there in the universe and there’s only one way to find them, look up!
How to celebrate – Buy a telescope. Visit an observatory. Become an astronaut.
