Stars on Mars Hill

November 19, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Stars on Mars Hill

Once a month, Lowell Observatory offers a free public lecture from visiting astronomers. November's lecture is "Space Rocks! A Meteorite’s History of the Solar System" presented by Lowell's own Dr. Nick Moskovitz. The Earth experiences a continual bombardment of asteroid impactors from space. The vast majority of these are small bodies that only occasionally survive passage through the atmosphere and deliver meteorites to the ground. Using examples from the Lowell meteorite collection, Dr. Moskovitz will highlight the amazing stories that meteorites tell about the origins and evolution of our Solar System.
