Meteors, Meteorites, Meteoroids, Oh My!

As the observatory is currently closed, this lecture is only available online via Zoom. See meeting info below. 

Meteors streaking through the sky are beautiful and mysterious. Have you ever wondered about the origins or compositions of meteors? Dr. Alexander Yep will explore their origins, appearances and compositions. She will share with us when we might next see a meteor, and where we might find meteorites. 

Dr. Alexander Yep is a poet turned astronomer. After earning her BFA in creative writing and classical studies, she dove straight into quantum mechanics on her way to a Ph.D. in astronomy. Now a professor at Agnes Scott University in Atlanta, Georgia, she researches stars and star clusters.
