The Buzzard Coulee Meteorite

Visit the T.rex Discovery Centre and see an actual piece of a meteorite that crashed near the Buzzard Coulee in west-central Saskatchewan in November 2008, following a fiery meteor shower that lit up skies from Alberta to Montana.

The meteorite is part of our collection; it fell on farmland east of Lloydminster. The owners of the farm, brothers Ian and Alex Mitchell, donated their astronomical find to the Royal Saskatchewan Museum.
