This is May 4th. What does that mean? Well, in California, it means our state legislature has declared May 4th as "Star Wars Day." Why, you ask? Because “May the 4th” sounds a lot like “May the Force” be with you!
There is also other otherworldly news this weekend. For the stargazers out there, the Eta Aquariids appear before dawn on May 4th, May 5th and May 6th. For more information on their viewing, you can visit: http://earthsky.org/tonight
