Ucla Meteorite Lectures

Recommended Posts

I get an email from the UCLA Meteorite Collection which is on the UCLA campus in Los Angeles.  I've attended a number of their lectures in a small lecture room which is usually attended by less than 50 people.  You have the ability to ask lots of questions and see the meteorites on display in the gallery.

The November lecture and link to the website is here:

https://meteorites.ucla.edu/events/

 

The January lecture is going to be of importance because they will be discussing one of the largest stony meteorites ever found.  Here is the preview:

 

Advance notice of the next lecture

Title: "A coming out party for a large stony meteorite"

Lecturers: Dr. Peter Utas, a physician meteorite collector, and Dr. Alan Rubin of UCLA

When: 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, 26 January 2020

 

Large iron meteorites are common, big stones are rare. Our atmosphere presents a formidable barrier to large rocks, efficiently transforming boulders into pebbles. But a few survive the fiery plunge. Peter reviews the roster of these great intruders, with a short description of several, and introduces a rare survivor, NWA XXXX, the 15th largest surviving stone. Discovered five years ago, in Mali or Mauritania, this flight-marked 205-kilogram specimen was largely buried, the soil-line still clearly visible. Rubin describes the analysis and classification of chondritic stones; naked eye examination of hand specimens gives important clues, but quantitative techniques are needed to avoid being misled. Hand samples of chondrites will be available for examination by attendees.

 

  

Admission

Free and open to the public.

When you see him, tell him Hi from Gary Crabtree!  He bought a Dale meteorite from me years ago.  He was only a student then.  GaryC/Oregon Coast

      Announcing the GPAA Columbus, GA Gold & Treasure Show!
      ALL REMAINING 2020 GOLD & TREASURE SHOWS HAVE BEEN POSTPONED
       
      Due to the CDC recommendation to postpone in-person events consisting of more than 50 people for the next 8 weeks, we have made the tough decision to respect their recommendation and postpone all remaining Gold & Treasure Shows. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please understand that this decision was made with your health and safety in mind, as well as the health and safety of GPAA staff and all those in attendance. Those who have purchased advanced tickets for the remaining Gold & Treasure Shows will receive full refunds for their ticket purchases. Please allow 7-10 business days for these refunds to be processed. Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to rescheduling the remaining shows as soon as it is appropriate to do so.
       
      Respectfully, GPAA Gold & Treasure Show Team
       
      Only a couple of hours from three GPAA leased properties, including our newest addition, the Adkison AU-Prospectors Lease in Tallapoosa County, Alabama, we couldn’t think of a better location to wrap up an 11-show run than in the Southeast at the Columbus, Georgia, Convention & Trade Center. More details to come, but this show is sure to be an incredible celebration of gold!
      See the latest from gold and treasure vendors, new equipment releases, local prospecting clubs and top-notch seminars from industry leaders. The show will feature close to 100’ of panning troughs loaded with more than three ounces of gold. The panning zone is a show favorite and a great experience for kids ages 4 to 94 to learn and refine proper panning skills from some of the best gold miners around. The best part – keep everything you find!
      The fun doesn’t stop there – every show day wraps up with the Major Prize Raffle where we give away thousands of dollars in prizes ranging from metal detectors to prospecting adventures. A raffle ticket is included with every paid admission, and more are available for purchase at the prize booth. All raffle ticket proceeds go to benefit local GPAA chapters.
      Got your eye on a new piece of mining equipment? The GPAA Gold & Treasure Shows are the best place to pick up that new dredge, high banker, sluice box, gold pan, you name it. Learn everything there is to know about mining equipment straight from the manufacturer. Plus, you’ll find some “can’t be beat” show pricing, not available anywhere else.
      Also included with admission is the Gold & Treasure Show Seminar Series. From basic to advanced prospecting and mining techniques, the seminar series is hosted by some of the most knowledgeable prospectors and geologists in the country. 
      Advanced Tickets to the GPAA Gold & Treasure Show are available for only $5. Check out the Gold & Treasure Shows event pages on Facebook @GPAAGoldShows for more information, event updates and additional prize giveaway opportunities!

The GPAA Gold & Treasure Shows are happy to announce the return to the Cabarrus Arena in Concord, North Carolina.
