August 8th is Global Sleep Under the Stars Night.
Whether it’s in the backcountry or your own backyard, one of the best ways to experience the beauty of the outdoors is to spend a night under the stars. Gazing up at the night sky gives us a sense of peace and, at the same time, an overwhelming sense of awe.
GLOBAL SLEEP UNDER THE STARS DAY HISTORY
Founded in 2020, Global Sleep Under The Stars is a unique way to encourage the world to experience the beauty of the outdoors under the same night sky, and also to celebrate the 100 Year Anniversary of the outdoor brand, Eddie Bauer – who has been inspiring and enabling people to live their adventure since 1920.
HOW TO OBSERVE #SleepUnderTheStarsNight
Let’s do this! Make a day of it on August 8th. Set up camp in your backyard, pitch a tent on the patio, bring blankets to the rooftop, or lay your sleeping bags out on the back deck and turn your gaze upward.
The celebration lands in the middle of the Perseid meteor showers! So, if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, look northeast for the best view and count the shooting stars as you fall into a peaceful sleep. Make it an annual tradition and share your experiences using #SleepUnderTheStarsNight or #EBUnderTheStars on social media.
