Friday, June 27
A meteorite hammer is a rock from space that hits something man-made as it lands on Earth. They are more valuable than “regular” space rocks that land here because there’s usually a story involved. What did it hit? Was there any damage? Was a person hurt? Was it on fire when it landed? Anita Westlake, co-founder and past president of the Meteorite Association of Georgia will talk about the stories, the stones, and the sudden impact of these visitors from space. If you think you have a meteorite, bring it along and Anita will be happy to identify it. And don’t forget to visit Tellus’s meteorite collection while you’re here! It’s…out of this world!
