Since 1776 to today, July 4th has been recognized as the start of American independence, with celebrations ranging from fairgrounds, fireworks, and family barbecues. Because of COVID-19, this year is looking a little differently.
Although most towns have canceled fireworks this holiday weekend, it doesn’t mean we won’t have anything exciting to watch on this special day.
Look to the Sky
Catch a glance of a lunar eclipse that will slightly darken the moon.
In a lunar eclipse, the moon moves through Earth’s shadow. It will enter the fainter penumbra (partially shaded outer region of the shadow cast by an opaque object). Read more about the lunar eclipse.
Organize a Virtual Movie Party
The eagerly anticipated Independence Day movie is “Hamilton,” the acclaimed Broadway musical from the writer and its star Lin-Manuel Miranda, and the director Thomas Kail arrives on Disney Plus today, July 3rd, 2020.
If you can’t watch “Hamilton,” some other movies to consider:
- 1776 (1972) A musical reiteration of the American Revolution’s struggles with the Continental Congress to declare independence.
- The Sandlot (1993) A new kid on the block moves to the neighborhood, making friends with a bunch of kids who play baseball at the sandlot. Fireworks and patriotic songs.
- National Treasure (2004) To find the hidden treasure before a team of mercenaries beat him to it, a historian and archivist (Nicolas Cage) must steal the Declaration of Independence. Lots of action and fun!
