How to find your NASA birthday picture

The website most people are using to find their image is ‘Astronomy Picture of the Day,’ with the page reading: “Each day a different image or photograph of our fascinating universe is featured, along with a brief explanation written by a professional astronomer.”

To find your picture, head to the website, scroll to the bottom, and click ‘calendar.’ Find your birth year or the birth year of the person whose picture you want to find (1995-2022), and then pick a month. Then select the day to see your image. Alternatively, you can Google search your birthday alongside the term ‘NASA picture.’

The range of pictures on the site is huge, but some have gone viral for posting some not-so-exciting results.

NASA also has another website where you can see what the Hubble Telescope saw on your birthday, though this site only has the option to input the month and date.

Some are uploading these images to TikTok alongside pictures of themselves, and are going viral for showing off the range of amazing space pictures that correspond with their birthday.
