It was Friday, under the sign of Libra (see birth chart on October 17, 2014). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of October people in US were listening to All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor. Interstellar, directed by Christopher Nolan, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2014 while This Changes Everything by Naomi Klein was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Affair. If you liked videogames you were probably playing 1000 Days of Syria or A City Sleeps.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2014 or at October 17 across the years.
