Finding Space Rocks offers insight and knowledge to help identify and find Meteorites. We will also have the Sky in December from Nigel Goodman.

The presenter, Will Joy, describes this together with his meteorite hunting adventures. Will includes many photos and videos showing Meteorites being found in real-time, all taken on his prospecting adventures. There will also be a short competition for one person to win a meteorite, using the knowledge and tips given during this talk!

Will is a member of the Astronomical Society of Edinburgh and the British Astronomical Association. After gaining his degree in Mining Engineering, he has worked World-Wide in Mining and Drilling Operations as a Senior Engineer which have taken him to some very remote and challenging places to work.

Will has a passion for prospecting and Astronomy and is currently making a career change to Sustainable Energy Systems, studying for an MSc here at Edinburgh University.
