Asteroid Day is a global awareness campaign where people from around the world come together to learn the dangers asteroids pose and what we can do to protect our families, communities, and future generations. Asteroid Day will be held on the anniversary of the June 30, 1908, Tunguska blast, the largest asteroid impact on Earth in recent history. All around the globe, regionally organised events are held on Asteroid Day. These events range from live concerts and community events, to lectures and other educational programmes, to raise public awareness of the need for increased detection and mapping of asteroids.
51 Degrees North is the feature film which inspired Asteroid Day. It was directed by Asteroid Day co-founder Grig Richters. Dr Brian May composed the music. You can screen it free of charge at your event.
