Presentation focuses on rocks from space

Scientists continue to keep an eye on the sky for falling rocks.

While asteroids might have been a popular video game in the 1980s, scientists continue to keep an eye on the sky for falling rocks.

The Nanaimo Astronomy Society hosts Killer Rocks From Space, a presentation with Bill Weller who discusses asteroids, past impacts, the effects and the possibility of future strikes.

The talk takes place Nov. 24 from 7-9 p.m. at Bowen Park Complex, 500 Bowen Rd.

Admission is free, but donations for the society’s outreach program are accepted.
