Meteorites Through the Microscope

Thanks to my friend Bob of Blackholes and Astrostuff who photographed the meteorites below through his Celestron LCD digital microscope. They look really astounding. These meteorites belong to the Buzzard Coulee fall of Nov. 20, 2008 (see earlier posts for info on this meteorite). I'm not sure what all the features are called, other than the chondrules (?), but they look fantastic anyway. The meteorites were collected by myself on May 2, 2009, near Marsden, SK. The bottom photo is of Angrite. The picture was sent to me by Bob. It looks amazing. Enjoy.
