This *crazy* broom challenge will blow your mind
Over the past few days, Twitter, Instagram and even TikTok have been *losing it* over the #BroomstickChallenge, where users magically get a broom to stand on its own!
The challenge all started when Twitter users claimed that NASA said that February 10 was the only day a broomstick could stand on its own because of a special gravitational pull.

While NASA denied this claim and showed that a broom can balance any day of the year, that didn't stop the challenge from trending on Twitter.
The challenge comes from an old rumor that eggs can balance on their heads during the spring and fall equinox - which fall on March 20 and Spetember 22.
Even celebrities took part in the challenge! Here's Colleen Ballinger's (Miranda Sing's) attempt at the #BroomstickChallenge.
Even if the science behind this *mindblowing* challenge isn't exactly correct, the internet still had fun attempting it!
