Meteor Crater and Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona, set the stage for a fantastic Asteroid Day celebration. Flagstaff’s “Big Impact Event” will highlight the Meteor Crater, formed 50,000 years ago, representing the best preserved meteor impact site in the world. Meteor Crater is 700 feet deep, more than astronomical 4,000 feet across, and 2.4 miles in circumference. Lowell Observatory, a 128-year-old astronomical observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona, studies near-earth asteroids and has discovered roughly 30,000 asteroids and about 40 comets in our solar system. The two organizations together will plan a one-day event complete with panels, speakers, food trucks, local beer, tours of both facilities, poi performances, and night-sky viewing.
