The George Observatory main campus is closed until further notice for renovations. Fear not stargazers, we will still be setting up at the Nature Center every Saturday from Sunset – 10 PM (weather permitting).
This fascinating exhibit includes a piece of the Allende, Chihuahua, Mexico carbonaceous chondrite meteorite, which fell to the Earth on Feb. 8, 1969. This is the most primitive type of meteorite known. Containing interstellar grains – stardust – it is believed to have formed during an explosion of a supernova/red giant star before the birth of the solar system, making it one of the oldest substances known to man.
