Tonight's Sky for March 14: Pi Day

Today is Pi Day, which serves to celebrate the ratio of a circle's diameter to its circumference, which just happens to be a relationship of 1 to 3.14, hence why we celebrate on 3/14 of every year. Pi Day originally began as a day to celebrate and promote math education but, over time, science teachers have come to embrace it, as well.
