Sunday November 16, 1997

US date format: 11/16/1997, UK date format: 16/11/1997

It was Sunday, under the sign of Scorpio (see birth chart on November 16, 1997). The US president was Bill Clinton (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. Famous people born on this day include Marta Peneda and Amanda Clapham. In that special week of November people in US were listening to Candle In The Wind 1997 by Elton John. Ishq, directed by Indra Kumar, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1997 while The Angel Of Darkness by Caleb Carr was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Sleepwalkers. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Amulets & Armor or 64 Ōzumō.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
