Near Miss Day

Near Miss Day 2015
March 23, 2015 in the World
Near Miss Day takes place on March 23, 2015. It commemorates the day a huge Asteroid nearly missed hitting the earth on March 23, 1989. The 300-meter (1,000-foot) diameter asteroid missed the Earth by 700,000 kilometers (430,000 mi) passing through the exact position where the Earth was only 6 hours before. If the asteroid had impacted it would have created the largest explosion in recorded history, would have left a devastating crater the size of Washington, D.C. It attracted widespread attention as early calculations had its passage being as close as 64,000 km (40,000 mi) from the Earth, with large uncertainties that allowed for the possibility of it striking the Earth.
Other Asteroid Near Misses:
– 2003 SQ222 – Approximately 10 meters in diameter, came within 54,700 miles of earth on September 27, 2003.
– Asteroid 2002 EM7 – Approximately, 70 meters long, this rock came within 288,000 miles in March, 2002.

World Meteorological Day
March 23, 2015 in the World
World Meteorological Day is observed annually on 23 March. Each year the day has a different theme. The theme for 2015 is  ‘Climate Knowledge for Climate Action’.
Organised by the World Meteorological Organisation, a part of the United Nations, and the day has been celebrated for over 60 years! Meteorological means the study of weather and short term forecasting.  And weather is something that effects us all!
The day commemorates the World Meteorological Organisation’s convention, and in previous years events have included presentations on the weather and climate, preventing natural disasters and sustainable development – all very important issues.
And you can get involved with these important discussions too. The official website has everything you need to know about weather, climate and water and has loads of useful resources to get you involved and inspired to make a difference.

National Chip and Dip Day
March 23, 2015 in the USA
Chips and dip are the iconic American party snack. Whether you prefer tortilla chips, potato chips, or corn chips, there are dozens of dips to complement your snack of choice.
Humans have been dipping their food into sweet and savory sauces for centuries. Some of the earliest dips were hummus and olive oil, which originated in the Mediterranean region and are still very popular today. Salsas and dips made with sour cream became popular in the United States in the 1940s. After the Great Depression, many middle class families found themselves without a maid for the first time. Chips and dip became the go-to party dish because it was so simple to prepare.
To celebrate National Chip and Dip Day, invite some friends over for a potluck-style chip and dip party!
