International Asteroid Day: International Asteroid Day is celebrated every year on June 30th. This day is celebrated annually to spread awareness among citizens about the impact and intensity of an asteroid over planet earth.
International Asteroid Day is also observed to make people aware of certain objects that can harm the planet earth. This day is celebrated on June 30th because of the Siberia, Russian Federation incident that took place in 1908. The Tunguska is one of the most dangerous asteroids that hit the earth and destroyed flora and fauna.
International Asteroid Day importance
International Asteroid Day was founded by the UN in December 2016 when the UN general assembly implemented resolution A/RES/71/90. On this day, several panel discussions are conducted by the experts to discuss this field.
It is important for people to know about this day because asteroids attacks are very dangerous for planet earth and people should be aware of the celestial bodies. This year International Asteroid Day talks will be held virtually because of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
