Meteorite Sample

On October 17, California was treated to a second meteorite of the year. What are the chances of that?

Peter Jenniskens, astronomer at the SETI Institute, came by today to show off this recently found meteorite, and to discuss the Meteorite Flight we plan to do tomorrow. We're hoping the aerial search we do tomorrow will help researchers find additional, and hopefully larger, examples. Stay tuned!

(The flight will depart Moffett Field in the morning, and arrive to Charles Schulz Sonoma Airport in the late afternoon. We then will be doing ground tours and Wine Country flights both Saturday and Sunday).
