THATCHER, AZ—The Desert Sky Gazers amateur astronomy club, in partnership with Eastern Arizona College’s Discovery Park Campus, will present a free lecture on “Meteors, Meteoroids, and Meteorites,” given by EAC astronomy student LoraLyn Church, on Saturday, November 22, 2008, at 6:30 p.m. in the Jupiter Room of Discovery Park Campus.

Church will be discussing the pair of major meteor showers that occur during the month of November, the Leonids, which originate in the constellation Leo, and the Taurids, which begin in the constellation Taurus. She will also present information about other “Meteors, Meteoroids, and Meteorites.”
