Learn about the amazing discoveries NASA's Dawn mission has made at the asteroid Vesta and dwarf planet Ceres. The exhibition includes large, detailed wall panels, 3D images and models of Ceres and Vesta, a model of the spacecraft, meteorites that are interpreted to be from Vesta on loan from UNM’s Institute of Meteoritics, and a video showing computer animations from Dawn’s instruments.

Katherine Jetter, leading expert in the opal industry, is our guest curator. This amazing exhibit features examples of Australian, Mexican, Ethiopian and Peruvian opal, as well as some set jewels from Jetter’s collection.

FREE with Museum admission.
