    A meteor that came down in the NW this morning was caught on camera.

    A pilot reported seeing it hit the ground.

    It's going to make the news when someone finds it----now there's a treasure hunt

    I'd like to own a meteorite someday--or even better find one myself. When I used to go arrowhead hunting as a kid, I keep my eyes open for anything, including meteorites. I did find a dense piece of iron ore one time, that had grooves rubbed into it. It was was used to get a red pigment from---I guess its fairly rare too. I'll see if I can find it, dig it out of its almost forgotten box, and post a photo.

    Anyway--finding a meteorite:



    maybe not that big, but a baseball sized tektite would be nice.
