On February 15, at 9:20 AM local time, a fireball brighter than the Sun lit up the skies over Chelyabinsk, Russia. The fireball was caused by a small asteroid, about 60 feet in diameter, entering Earth's atmosp
here at a speed of over 40,000 mph and breaking into fragments about 20 miles above the surface. The presentation will give details on this extraordinary, once in 75 year occurrence, and how it may mark a turning point in the study of objects capable of colliding with Earth.

    Below the radar only seats 35 in their meeting room and others will be there along with our 15. So I hope their is enough seats for everyone. If not, you are welcome to try to squeeze in somewhere or stand in the back. It's their first event, and they aren't sure how the turnout will be. It's first come first serve, so come early to grab a seat.

    I believe this is their first event. I just learned it is part of the Nationwide effort to promote science by the NOVA programs.
