Metafilter sets the stage for the cute, newly minted video above:
At 1:00pm on May 17th, 2017, Neil deGrasse Tyson tweeted that he occasionally longed for someone to read Good Night Moon to him as he falls asleep. Six minutes later, LeVar Burton tweeted “I got you… Let’s do this!” And do it they did.
Some background: LeVar Burton hosted the children’s TV show Reading Rainbow for two decades, reading to children and encouraging them to read. His new podcast, LeVar Burton Reads, is like Reading Rainbow for adults. Neil deGrasse Tyson is a famous dancer yt /astrophysicist.
You can see Susan Sarandon read her own version. Find it in the Relateds below. Enjoy.
