Do you know what day it is?
It’s March 28, 2015. Today marks a special day of global proportions. Today, people all over the world are embracing this wonderful planet we live on. Today, we celebrate Earth Hour
Originally launched 8 years ago in Australia by the World Wide Fund for Nature, or the World Wildlife Fund (WWF
), Earth Hour has grown significantly. Last year over 7,000 cities participated in 154 countries across all 7 continents.
This evening, from 8:30-9:30PM (local time), Observatory staff will be honoring this event by observing (in addition to the weather
), an hour of darkness
, in an effort to raise awareness about all of the environmental issues our planet is facing.
But this event does not end after one hour. This is an on-going effort to raise awareness, make changes, and celebrate the commitment to making this world a better place.
