Today is Star Wars Day.
It's not official. It's a joke popularized by Star Wars fans, as in “May the 4th Be With You.”
Being an old school Star Wars fan, I always considered May 25th to be “Star Wars Day.”
The first film, now dubbed “Episode IV: A New Hope,” premiered on May 25, 1977. It became George Lucas' good-luck charm to premiere his Star Wars or Indiana Jones films on or around May 25.
Anyway, NASA chose to get into the act this year, as you can see above.
