Mesa, AZ – The Arizona Museum of Natural History (AzMNH) offers the community “A Night with the Stars” on Friday, Oct. 4 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the AzMNH, located at 53 N. Macdonald in Mesa.
 
During this astronomical evening, visitors can explore the museum galleries and participate in special activities, including crafts and demonstrations. Plus we will have telescope viewing with the East Valley Astronomy Club from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Students from Arizona State University’s School of Earth and Space Exploration will also be available in the Origins Exhibition to discuss their research. ASU - Ron Greeley Center, the Astronomy Club and the Center for Meteorite Studies will feature activities including touchable meteorites!  You will also meet and view a presentation by Dr. Melissa Morris, Assistant Director of ASU's Center for Meteorite Studies.   She will discuss "Meteorites 101".  Meteorites originate in outer space, but find a way to planet Earth.  Plan to have fun learning about space rocks!
