For those who attend our meeting in-person, you will have an opportunity to see and touch some real meteorites, and view some rare types, including one from the Moon, one from Mars, and one from a fall near Homestead, Iowa in 1875!

We hope you are able to attend, and that you invite others to what promises to be an entertaining and edifying evening!
