October 3rd Astronomy Day

Today we celebrate all that surrounds us in space. The galaxy, the stars, the planets and generally anything dealing with space. Astronomy, of course, is the study of all things concerning space but also things that are no longer in existence, since many of the stars we see have already burned out since the image was made present. It can take up to thousands of years to see that light from deep space. The science is sometimes referred to “Seeing the past”. This day was created by Doug Berger in 1973 to honor those who study space and all that goes along with it.

How to celebrate – Break out your telescope! Study the stars. Join an astronomy club.
