It was Saturday, under the sign of Virgo (see birth chart on August 27, 2016). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Cheap Thrills by Sia Featuring Sean Paul. Arrival, directed by Denis Villeneuve, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2016 while Sting by Sandra Brown was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Brimstone. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens or Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2016 or at August 27 across the years.
