Comet Me, Bro!

Asteroid Day

It's never too early to start planning for your last moments on Earth, so zoom over to Asteroid Day. This event rocks the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science from 10am to 2pm on Sunday, June 30. Learn about asteroids and their impacts on Earth, NASA's mission to our local asteroid belt, the disappearance of the dinosaurs and other space news. Watch live streaming of other Asteroid Day celebrations worldwide (yes, that's a thing). UNM's Institute of Meteoritics helps visitors distinguish between meteorites and regular, old Earth rocks and the curator of the exhibition, Dr. Tom Prettyman, hosts an "Asteroid Advice Booth." All activities are included in museum admission. Admission prices range from $4 to $10. For more information on this all-ages event visit nmnaturalhistory.org.
