Rare Martian meteorite on view through Mar. 26 in NYC

An extraordinarily rare Martian meteorite - the only one known to have impacted earth since 1962 - is on display at a New York City gallery now through March 26. Immediately following its East Coast exhibition, the stellar specimen known as the Tissint Meteorite will return to Beverly Hills, Calif., where it will be the headliner in a May 6 Natural History auction at I.M. Chait Gallery.
The meteorite made its landing near Tata, Morocco, in the early hours of July 18, 2011. Several people in the region of the Oued Dra valley observed a bright fireball in the sky, yellow in colour at first, and then turning a bright green before splitting into two parts as two loud sonic booms were heard. Not long after, nomads in the area started to find very fresh, fusion-crusted stones near the town of Tissint. Once research began on these samples, it was discovered, amid much excitement, that they had originated on Mars.
