June 30, 2020 – National Meteor Watch Day | National Social Media Day
Welcome to June 30th, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate staying connected on and off the grid. More after the break from Marlo Anderson.
Imagine a time when you couldn’t simply log in to a website and see what your loved ones were doing. When it was near-impossible to stay in touch with a friend who moved to another country. Since the birth of social media, those days seem so far away. Sites like Facebook and LinkedIn have become such a part of people’s lives that most of us can’t imagine going through a day without visiting them. You can see photos of your college roommate’s vacation. You can share a story about your crazy day at work. The world is literally connected through these sites and apps. On National Social Media Day, reach out to an old friend and maybe make some new ones.
Before there were social media stars, people watched the actual stars in the night sky and on rare occasions, they were even rewarded with the spectacular display of a meteor shower. On National Meteor Watch Day we celebrate the wonder of viewing space from the ground. If you think this won’t capture your kid’s imagination, consider this little fact: there are millions of meteors that occur in Earth’s atmosphere every single day and it’s the friction of these pebble sized rocks that creates the beautiful flare. Check out a guide for optimal viewing and on National Meteor Watch Day consider how amazing it is that this light show happens every night for free.
