The days that passed have taught us many things and we are going to rock the rest of the months as well.

Moon Day 

Mankind has taken some leaps in the past and we trace them as historical milestones. At a time when space was yet a mystery, the human race took their advancement to one more notch higher by setting foot on the moon. Today marks the day when the first lunar expedition took place and we need to celebrate this no matter what. The first time we did it was not easy, but truly magical. On 20 July in 1969, Neil Armstrong and two others marked the moon as a territory that human magnificence has touched. Also, today is a day to celebrate how these space workers work and applaud their efforts to push limits and take things related to space and one more step forward towards undoing the secrets of the universe. 

Now, to celebrate the day, it could be done in many ways. If you find yourself a space enthusiast, today is the best day to get to the library or surf the web to devour on all the information available on our first journey to the moon. Also, you can gaze at the moon today with your loved ones and have a beautiful night tonight!
