Meteorite Find

Well, the search teams were full last weekend unfortunately, so I was not able to get out searching for meteorites. However, my Dad was able to go. He found a number of good pieces. They are visibly burned from entering the atmosphere. The pieces he kept were about 74 grams and 215 grams. I'm still hoping to get out this coming weekend and find some pieces of my own. I'll post something if I'm able to do so. Anyway, below is a picture of my Dad's meteorite.


  1. Yes, thanks, Papa Nuts is very proud of that find. And he is nuts by the way. He is into astronomy and I have always called him an astro-nut, hence where the blog name came from.
