So if just like us, you scroll through your social media and see brooms standing up for no reason… keep scrolling.

A viral tweet suggested that NASA said 10 February was the ONLY day you can make the ‘standing broom’ trick work and netizens have been going all out to try the challenge! 

However, the plot twist is that there was nothing of that sort mentioned by NASA to support the tweet… 


The truth is, you can try it on ANY day! It has got nothing to with the earth’s gravitational force on a certain day like what people ‘claim’ NASA said. 

But does the Twitter-verse look like it cares? They’re going to try it anyway! 

Exactly. A meteorologist explained that if you balance a broom correctly, the centre of gravity will be directly over its bristles... which will cause it to stand on its own. But... let's just join in the fun.

Hmmm, this is an interesting experiment. Have you tried it?
