National Look Up At The Sky Day

April 14th is observed annually as National Look Up at the Sky Day. This day encourages people to look up at the sky and see what they’ve been missing. Most of the time, people concentrate on the things right in front of them, but few take the time to just sit back and enjoy all that lies above them.

Clouds, stars, and the moon are just there waiting for us to notice their beauty and grandeur. And if we get really lucky, we might even see an unidentified flying object. You just never know. Let’s all come together on this holiday and see what we’ve been missing all this time.

The History of National Look Up at the Sky Day

Jack Borden is well known for inspiring people to look up at the sky. He was the founder of For Spacious Skies, a nonprofit organization dedicated to inducing ongoing conscious awareness of our skies. In 1987, this holiday was created in honor of this organization and has been celebrated ever since.

Observing National Look Up at the Sky Day

All anyone has to do on this holiday is take the time to look up. That’s all a person has to do. Although there might be some “sky watching” groups organized on this day, the beauty of National Look Up at the Sky Day is that anyone can observe it from their yard or by going outside for a break while at work.

Just take a few moments to look up at the beautiful sky, and while you do, don’t forget to use the hashtag #NationalLookUpAtTheSkyDay on social media. No matter who you are or where you live, this is a holiday that can be celebrated and instill in people a sense of wonder.
