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?
