Celebrating the 100th Anniversary
of the Meteorite Fall
exactly 100 years ago to the day.

  Join us to enjoy a fascinating insight
  into the fall and discovery of the Appley
  Bridge meteorite in 1914, as told
  through newspaper reports and archive
  documents of the time. The meteorite
  explosions, fireball, the confusion with
  enemy Zeppelins, the confiscation of the
  meteorite by the police and its
  subsequent release for analysis will all
  be told. A sample of the actual meteorite
  will be on display together with the
  beautiful cast of the meteorite. There
  will also be samples to handle from the
  British and Irish Meteorite Society.

  'The Appley Bridge Meteorite' book,
  launced at the event, includes previously
  unseen images of the meteorite from
  around the World.  Signed copies will be
  available for purchase.
