What happened to the dinosaurs? How did the craters on the Moon get there?

Join the Colorado Springs Astronomical Society at the Dinosaur Resource Center in Woodland Park (201 S Fairview St, Woodland Park, CO 80863) on Saturday, March 10th from 10:00 – 4:00 PM as we explore these questions. Help make a dry ice comet and build and test a model to simulate meteor impacts on the Moon. Learn what forces have covered up most traces of meteor impacts on the Earth.
