Wednesday February 17, 1999

US date format: 2/17/1999, UK date format: 17/2/1999

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on February 17, 1999). 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. In that special week of February people in US were listening to Angel Of Mine by Monica. In UK You Don't Know Me by Armand Van Helden featuring Duane Harden was in the top 5 hits. Annaluise & Anton, directed by Caroline Link, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1999 while In Danger'S Path by W. E. B. Griffin was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Sopranos. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Asheron's Call or Legoland.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
