Saturday August 20, 1983

US date format: 8/20/1983, UK date format: 20/8/1983

It was Saturday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on August 20, 1983). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Andrew Garfield and Amrita Puri. In that special week of August people in US were listening to Every Breath You Take by The Police. In UK Give It Up by KC & The Sunshine Band was in the top 5 hits. Suburbia, directed by Penelope Spheeris, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1983 while The Price Of Power by Seymour M. Hersh was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Vom Webstuhl zur Weltmacht. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Atic Atac or B.C.'s Quest for Tires.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 1983 or at August 20 across the years.
