Dear Meteorite Friends,

I am proud to announce the Grand Opening of a very special display in the
Peabody Museum at Yale University! My loan of the main mass of lunar
meteorite Northwest Africa 5000 (NWA 5000), combined with an ancient clay
tablet from the Yale Babylonian Collection (MLC 1880 - 'Velocity of the
Moon'), is sure to amaze and thrill the public throughout the year. In
addition to these authentic specimens, there is a full size painted replica
of NWA 5000 to compliment the display and offer a glimpse of what the uncut
mass looked like before sharing samples with the world.

I would like to thank everyone involved who helped make this special
occasion possible. Without the dedication and enthusiasm from these
professionals I would not have been able to share such a marvel of nature!

The display is scheduled to run through November 30, 2016. Please share in
my excitement by viewing a few images I present here:
