Setting Sun(s), Pembroke Blvd. Happy Yuri's Night!

Yuri's Day, April 12, is one of the L5 National Holidays. It celebrates Yuri Gagarin's first human orbital spaceflight of the Earth on April 12, 1961. April 12, 1981 was also the first flight of NASA's Space Shuttle. Yuri's Night is "the world space party" celebrated across the globe - and into space.
