Michigan Meteor Saturday

Meteor enthusiasts wanted! Have you been hunting for meteorites after the Michigan meteor? Did this week’s event pique your interest in meteors? Cranbrook Institute of Science is hosting a pop-up event at the museum this Saturday, January 20 from 1:00 – 4:00pm, free with museum admission. Think you have a meteorite? Bring it to the Institute and our experts will inspect it, while teaching how to identify a meteorite from a common rock. Visitors will see real-life examples of meteorites that fell in Michigan and around the world, and touch actual asteroid fall out layer from the dinosaur-killing impact. And Institute geologist John Zawiskie will speak at 2:00pm about meteorites and their use in ancient cultures.
