 Next, Next MAG Event: Friday, April 6th, 2018

MAG Members,

On April 6 from 6pm to 7:30, we will meet at Dave Gheesling's home. We will be having a remote presentation from Brian Day, NASA Scientist and outreach specialist. He will be talking about the Desert Fireball Network and the Fireballs in the Sky app used for citizen science. We will also be discussing the upcoming hammer fall exhibit at Tellus, scheduled to begin in October and run for six months.

Please RSVP, especially if you need directions or the address.

Regards,
Chris Thompson

 Next, Next MAG Event: Saturday, April 21st, 2018

MAG Members,

We will also have a table at Tellus for National Astronomy Day, April 21. Last year we had wonderful crowds - everyone was busy the whole day. This year, Tellus will do more advertising featuring meteorites and MAG, so expect an even bigger crowd! We need everyone to attend, and bring your show and tell items to educate visitors. MAG will supply small NWA's to give to the children who attend.

Please RSVP for April 21 so I can give Tellus a count (and so you get free entry, if you're not a Tellus member) and they can give us adequate space to run our outreach tables.

Regards,
Chris Thompson

him know you have RSVPed for the meetings.
