International Astronomy Day
Date When Celebrated : Always April 28
Grab your telescope, look for a dark place and pray for know clouds, as Astronomy Day is upon us. It is a day to look up to the stars. It was established to promote astronomy to the general public. Astronomy clubs and groups use this day to help teach the people about the stars, and other celestial bodies in the universe. These groups take advantage of this day to offer people a view of the stars through a telescope, if possible.
There is also an Astronomy Week. It begins the Monday before Astronomy Day.
Today is truly an Astronomical day!
Today's Quote: "Astronomy compels the soul to look upwards and leads us from this world to another. - - Plato
