Meteorite Flight to Wine Country

We flew the Meteorite Flight on Friday, getting into Sonoma late in the afternoon. Over the weekend the lead scientist, Peter Jenniskens of SETI, blogged about his experiences at the SETI web site. We were able to provide two passes over the projected debris field on the trip, carrying Peter, a navigator, and a resident of Novato (Glenn Rivera) who had helped the effort last week.
