Join Our Annual Celebration of Easton’s Claim to Astronomical Fame!
On December 14 every year we celebrate the cosmic event in 1807 that put Easton at the center of scientific exploration.
Celebrate and learn about the world-famous meteorite that was observed by Eastonites in the sky before it landed on farmland here on this day 216 years ago. The event is known as the first documented observation of space stuff landing in North America. Chunks of our town meteor (officially and misleadingly known as the Weston Meteorite) are held in collections around the world, from the Yale Peabody Museum in New Haven to the Vatican Observatory in Italy.
From 6pm – 8pm, come to enjoy guided stargazing with astrophysics guy and JBHS alum Colin Holm-Hansen plus celestial canapés and cosmic cocktails for the occasion.
Please register here by December 12.
