Asteroid Day @ Lowell Observatory
Jun 30 @ 10:00 am – 10:00 pm

Impacting asteroids and the Arizona fireball of June 2016

Special Asteroid Day talk by Dr. Nick Moskovitz

Early in the morning of June 2 an extremely bright meteor was seen over the skies of Arizona and surrounding states. Fragmentation of the meteor was observed, loud explosions were heard from the ground, and a residual dust trail persisted for several hours. Estimates suggest this was caused by an asteroid about 6 feet across that hit the Earth at a speed in excess of 40,000 mph.  Dr. Nick Moskovitz will discuss the variety of instruments that observed this event and will provide some context for this event in our overall understanding of Earth impacting asteroids.

When: June 30th at 7pm

Where: Lowell Observatory Lecture Hall

Who: Dr. Nick Moskovitz

Meet an Astronomer @ Lowell Observatory
Jul 1 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Featured Astronomer: Dr. Phillip Massey

 

There aren’t many places in the world where the public can meet a professional astronomer and ask him or her questions. In this spirit, we’re kicking off our new “Meet an Astronomer” initiative. Come up to Mars Hill and meet a Lowell astronomer almost every Friday and Saturday evening from 7:30-10:00 p.m. during the busy summer months of June, July and August*. Plus, take a peek at real-time images of planets, stars, galaxies and other celestial objects to be displayed on a large television screen outdoors with our new MallinCam. This is your opportunity to see interesting objects in the night sky, learn about an astronomer’s research, and ask questions you might have about any topic in astronomy.
