METEORITES

August 20, 2020 at 12:00 p.m.
with Stephenie Slahor PhD

presented by the Desert Lecture Collaborative

They come from outer space to Earth. But don’t worry. Meteors and meteor showers have been streaking through our atmosphere for ages and some of them actually land on Earth as meteorites. Learn about where they might originate, how they make their way to our atmosphere and planet, and how to identify a possible meteorite. You’ll also hear about some of the most spectacular showers and meteorites to visit our planet.

Stephenie Slahor holds a Doctor of Philosophy degree and a Juris Doctor degree. Her career spans the fields of journalism, law, administration and education. She has traveled extensively and has lectured and taught at many colleges, universities, and museums, including the Hi-Desert Nature Museum.
