Show and tell at the Meteorite Gallery

January 14 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free
meteorite

Our January event will be a show and tell in which we show and discuss some beautiful and important new additions to the Gallery. One of these is a new lunar meteorite “a lunar-highlands breccia” that includes several large angular fragments with different colors (shades of gray) and textures. It is similar to some samples returned from the Moon by the Apollo 16 astronauts.

If you would like to bring a meteorite or meteorite-related sample to show, please let us know in advance: [email protected]. We will print a list for distribution and invite some exhibitors to say a few words about what they are showing. If you are considering to bring something to show, please tell us in advance so that we have plenty of time to discuss logistics.

That morning our Advisory Committee will meet and the members will also stay around during the afternoon to show some of their meteorites, old manuscripts, and meteorite-related art.
