Is the broom challenge a real thing?

You may have seen a bunch of pictures of brooms standing by themselves yesterday on February 10th. The story was that the Earth was at just the right gravitational tilt and on only February 10th- your broom would stand all by itself.

I tried- mine did not- but there are a LOT of pictures where people got it to work. Was it gravity or balance?

Try it today and post your pics- success or failure!
