Did you know that 100 tons of dust and sand-sized particles from space bombard Earth daily? Thankfully, most of it doesn’t make it through our atmosphere. However, the larger meteorites that do survive offer a unique glimpse into the formation and evolution of our solar system.

Join environmental educator, Kim Fendrich, for a presentation on asteroids, comets, and meteorites, and learn about the stories they tell us.

The presentation will take place in the art gallery at the he Rockefeller State Park Visitor’s Center.

Max: 20 people
