Hamburg Meteorite Presentation, Open Observing Night VIII

June 22, 2018 @ 4:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Although we are a bit bummed out about the weather forecast, the show must go on, so we have lined up an exciting presentation:

You may recall the meteor that was seen from all over Michigan in late January this year. We are excited to announce that Tony Licata, a member of our club, found some fragments of the meteor and he has a excellent presentation on the subject.  Tony will also be bringing his meteorites along with him for everyone to see!
