Meteor on show for bicentenary
Evening Times (United Kingdom)
March 31, 2004

A METEOR discovered in High Possil will go on show at Glasgow's
Hunterian Museum to celebrate the bicentenary of its fall to Earth.
The exhibition, 2004: A Space Oddity, features the mysterious
black rock from outer space - one of the first to be scientifically
verified as a meteor after its crash into a quarry on April 5 1804.

It hit the ground with a loud bang, alarming the men working there.
In 1810 the landowner gave the meteor to the Hunterian Museum.
The exhibition opens on Friday and a series of 10-minute talks
will be held at 12.45pm for the rest of April
