Greetings Meteorite Friends!
We invite everyone to two very special free events in October that you
won't want to miss!
Both will be held at the University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary
Laboratory in Tucson (https://www.lpl.arizona.edu/):
October 16 (5-9pm) and October 17-18 (1-5pm) Art of Planetary Science
This widely acclaimed event showcases both /scientific //data as art/
and /art that represents planetary science/. I got a sneak peek at some
of the fantastic artwork that was submitted. It gets better and more
creative every year. Come see meteorite art displayed by friends on this
very list and be inspired for next year.
October 30 4:30-5:30pm Moon Tree Celebration
This very special commemoration will honor the UA's Bicentennial Moon
Tree whose seeds were carried to the moon and back by Apollo 14
astronaut Stuart Roosa in 1971. The keynote speaker is Jack Roosa, son
of astronaut Stuart Roosa. This may be the first time The University of
Arizona's Moon Tree has been officially honored since its planting.
Don't miss it! NASA documents it as one of only 64 surviving moon trees
located around the world. At 4 pm there will be a variety of exhibits
and posters to enjoy, too.
We celebrate interconnections to this special Tree via the Apollo moon
program, founding of the Lunar & Planetary Lab, poetry, UA Campus
Arboretum, and A.E. Douglass' contributions to both astronomy and
tree-ring research. Afterwards we will screen the Desert Moon movie
about LPL's contributions to lunar exploration narrated by astronaut
Mark Kelly and enjoy a Star Party with Tucson Amateur Astronomy
Association on the UA Mall.
We hope to see you soon!
