In 1992 a meteorite struck a parked car in Peekskill, NY. No one saw it hit, until now.

Carrie Dashow and I will present Eat Meat Meteorite, a new chapter in our Subliminal History of New York State, this month for the opening weekend of Peekskill Project, an annual arts festival organized by the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art.

We’ll be at the city waterfront, relating the story of the Peekskill Fireball — a meteorite that struck a parked car in Peekskill on October 9, 1992 — running a hamburger stand and science fair display. Our stand will illuminate the experience of the peekskill fireball, inviting visitors to ingest a meteorite and reenact the famous collision.

We will be presenting Eat Meat Meteorite during the weekend of September 16-17. On Saturday, we will be at the waterfront in Peekskill, right by the Metro North train station. On Sunday we will be at the Charles Point ferry landing.
