Tuesday April 28, 2009

US date format: 4/28/2009, UK date format: 28/4/2009

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on April 28, 2009). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Gordon Brown (Labour), Pope Benedict XVI was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of April people in US were listening to Boom Boom Pow by The Black Eyed Peas. Bright Star, directed by Jane Campion, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Incredible Human Journey. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Codename: Panzers - Cold War or Christmas Clix.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2009 or at April 28 across the years.
