Today’s date is catchy numerically, with three sets of twelves.
But how is the date significant?
That’s the opinion of Shelby County High School science teacher Eric Herndon.
The only thing even approaching an event of scientific significance in December is the fact that the sun will align with the center of galaxy for the first time in 26,000 years, according to the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
Is that significant?
An expert in astronomy, Herndon, said no.
