Event Date

Title: My Prairie Meteorite Searches

Murray Paulson

Murray Paulson 2021 Bio

I felt the starry sky’s calling when I was 9 years old and these many years later I find it still fascinates me. Whether viewing the planets, a distant nebula, or a colorful double, the sky brings me home. In the 90s I discovered Meteorites and Eclipses, both of which I fell in love with. Neither of these activities is helping the RRSPs along, but I didn’t want to retire anyway. And then in 2008 the Buzzard Coulee meteorite changed everything and I became a meteorite hunter, and better yet, a Meteorite finder! Many chases and hunts later it still excites me to find that next meteorite.

Due to the COVID19 pandemic, inperson meetings of The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada - Kingston Centre have been cancelled until further notice (since March 2020).In lieu of inperson meetings, we are holding virtual meetings with the aid of the Zoom videoconferencing system.

RASC-KC members will receive a preregistration email from the President a few days before the meeting.  This will also be sent to other RASC centres across canada, for the use of RASC members.

Non-members who are interested should view the meeting  on our Youtube Channel:


This will be livestreamed to our Youtube channel (RASC Kingston) as well. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFF-jyftqHUeQwsVMh99fXQ
For some people the bandwidth requirements may be much less than a live zoom call, but you will not be able to interact with the meeting as you would in zoom.
