Earth and Earth Day 2021

I believe Earth and Earth Day should be celebrated every day.

Earth Day was celebrated virtually in 2021. We had an Earth Day video contest. See winners here.

Earth Day celebrated its 51th anniversary on April 22.

Sadly this world wide event had to be done mostly online. 

Here is a link to wonderful  NASA Earth Day posters 

The planetarium look forward to celebrating Earth Day live next year.
