HISTORY CHANNEL SHOOT

Location news: The Aerolite Meteorites team (Leigh Anne Delray, Geoff Notkin, Lisa Marie) were filming in Pima County during July, for an important new documentary which will air on The History Channel. The shoot was for a 13-part astronomy/geology series about the history of our planet Earth. And no, it was not created 6,000 years ago : )

One of the episodes is entirely about meteorites, and we were thrilled to work with the Anglo-Canadian crew on this major project. Expected air date: December, 2008. More news when we have it.

NAT GEO DOCUMENTARY WORLD PREMIERE


Aerolite Meteorites owner Geoffrey Notkin and his long-time expedition partner, Steve Arnold were featured in "Our Atmosphere" a fascinating new Naked Earth documentary for National Geographic Television about the air around us, and how it protects us from — among other things — meteorites!

The one-hour documentary had its world premiere on April 1, 2008 (no, it was not an April Fool) and the meteorite hunting segment is the last feature in the episode. Geoff and Steve filmed in Red River County, Texas, investigating an old meteorite strewnfield, with the very kind assistance of their friend and colleague McCartney Taylor. It was a really windy day!
