Asteroid Day is a dynamic educational and awareness program to inspire the world about asteroids, including: their role in the formation of our universe, how we can use their resources, and how asteroids can pave the way for future exploration and finally how we can protect our planet from asteroid impacts. The United Nations declared 30th June as Asteroid Day, commemorating the anniversary of the Tunguska asteroid impact over Siberia, Russia, on the 30th June 1908. All around the globe, regionally organised events are held on Asteroid Day. These events range from live concerts and community events to lectures, presentations, and other educational programmes –all with the common goal of raising awareness of the need for increased detection and mapping of asteroids. Through Asteroid Day, we will continue to inspire people and young minds to look up to the sky and be excited about our Solar System.
