    Default Any historic events the day you were born?

    Well? Anything else historic happened the day you were born ( other than your birth of course )

    I cannot find anything notable that happened in the day i was born ( 21/8/1975 ).. I only found that one day earlier NASA launched the Viking 1 space probe toward Mars

    Maybe this is the reason why i like astronomy so much?

    Sea Gem, a North Sea oil rig, collapsed the day after I was born - nothing major on the day itself ( 26.12 65 ).

    March 21 1966 - the first United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination
    The candle flame gutters. Its little pool of light trembles. Darkness gathers. The demons begin to stir.

    Hurricane Cindy - September 15-20, 1963

    This cyclone formed within 200 nm of the Texas coastline on the 16th
    of September. Rapidly becoming a small hurricane, despite a poor radar
    signature, it made landfall in the Beaumont/Port Arthur/Orange Golden
    Triangle on the 17th, before turning to the left and paralleling the coast
    to the southwest. Below is the track of this cyclone, which used data
    provided by the National Hurricane Center.
