Here’s a cheerful snapshot of some of the Aurora team leaping in excitement at the prospect of today being 29 February – leap day.
In a rare occurrence which only happens once every four years, leap day’s are a result of what the BBC describes as the “messiness” of our Solar System. To make up for the fact that it takes the Earth approximately 365 days and six hours to orbit our sun (and not a clean cut 365 days), every four years an extra day is added to our calendar to make up for the exta hours.
Traditionally, people are urged do something extraordinary with the additional day. We know that the Aurora office sure will be, will you?
