Today we look not around, not down, not forward or back, but up to the moon. We look up to see the universe around us. Astronomy Day was created back in 1973 by the president of the Astronomical Association of Northern California, Doug Berger. On a side note, this holiday is spread out on two different dates; April 21st and October 13th.

Take the time to celebrate this holiday through research and investigation. Learn more about our world and where we lay in the universe. Bring out the old telescope and view the night sky. If you don't have your own, museums, observatories and other institutions that have telescopes will have said telescopes available for use and viewing.
