No December meeting
The November meeting discussed meteors and how their composition gives clues to where they originate in a parent body. We discussed meteors from asteroid collisions, volcanic events on planets, and even asteroid strikes on the earth.
The December meeting would fall on the 21st, which is too close to the holidays for a decent turnout. We will resume in January 2023 on the third Wednesday of the month as usual and the topic will be announced in the next newsletter.
Have a safe holiday season and may an abundance of mineral H2O beautifully grace your domicile.
