What became an interest turned into a passion to learn more about what happened over this small country town and the fallout from it.
It took many years of constant research which resulted in the launching of her book Space Gems – Mysteries of the Murchison Meteorite on Sunday 22 September 2019. The book was launched at the Murchison Heritage Centre by local amateur astronomer Cass Alexander, a retired air traffic controller, so he is very used to looking up into the sky.
On the same day as the book, launch four murals on the wall of the Murchison Heritage Centre were unveiled. The four panels show the reactions to the meteorite from cattle, birds, dogs and children. They were painted by local artist Jane Spencer.
