Visiting the Royal Observatory was one of the top highlights of my summer travels. Standing on the Prime Meridian was worth the visit, but the facility’s exhibits on astronomy and time fascinated me. I toured the grounds and caught a show in the planetarium, and I took several photos of London’s not-so-distant skyline.
This chunk of the Gibeon meteorite crashed into modern day Namibia, Africa, eons ago. It contains iron and nickel, and scientists estimate it’s about 4.5 billion years old. Yeah, I touched it.
