Discover meteoroids, meteors and meteorites!

At this free exhibition learn about the exciting Fireballs in the Sky science research project and find out how you can get involved in tracking meteors as well as see some real life meteorites!

Knowing where a meteorite came from, and what it is made of, will help us to address some of the biggest questions in planetary science: how our planetary system came into being, and how dust and gas produced a planet capable of supporting life – our Earth.

The Desert Fireball Network (DFN) is a network of digital cameras in the outback desert of Australia which capture photographs of the night sky.

The exhibition runs Wednesday 8 April to Sunday 3 May during regular opening hours.
