About Asteroid Day

Asteroid Day is an educational program to inspire the world about asteroids – their role in the formation of our universe, how we can use their resources, how asteroids can pave the way for future exploration and finally how we can protect our planet from asteroid impacts. Asteroid Day events are held on 30 June each year to mark the anniversary of the 1908 Tunguska impact. Asteroid Day events are largely independently organized around the world. Science clubs, educators, and asteroid enthusiastics host local events for people of all ages and are mostly free-of-charge. Asteroid Day is a program run by the Asteroid Foundation, a Luxembourg based nonprofit.  Asteroid Day is supported by the Luxembourg business community and Government and donors worldwide.
