The Peekskill Meteorite’s Silver Anniversary: 1992 to 2017

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 23:37:23 PST

Its hard to believe that the Peekskill Meteorite is already a quarter-century old. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Peekskill Meteorites, I am sharing some pictures of my slice along with a few words about the features that makes Peekskill such a wonderful specimen beyond the rather impressive artifacts of its […](image)



Meteor Crater Bomblets

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 22:49:25 PST

Harvey Harlow Nininger did about the best examination of the impact materials found at Meteor Crater in Arizona as anyone ever has. Some of the things that he reported on in depth had been seen and described poorly by others over several decades. The tiny bits of iron in the ground had been collected with […](image)



The Story of the Old Woman Meteorite – Another victim of the Post-Truth Era

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 20:28:28 PST

The Story of the Old Woman Meteorite – Another victim of the Post-Truth Era –   It all started innocently enough. It was the early hours of January 5th of this year when I got an email notification from Paul Schwartz that his latest installment of Meteorite Picture of the Day (MPOD) was now up […](image)



Another look at DaG 1040 CV3

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 19:20:57 PST

Five years ago we took a general look at DaG 1040 and last March the subject was its metal content. Recently I got to look at two new thin sections of this meteorite and I am intrigued again by its variety of features and textures. The first five photos below survey the striking difference between […](image)



The Futrell 458.3 gm Hainan Muong Nong: Seventh Sojourn

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 17:48:48 PST

Seventh attempt to write this piece? Why? The late Darryl Futrell, one of the greatest tektite aficionados of all time, was well-known for his belief that Muong Nong-type layered tektites held the keys to the kingdom of tektite mysteries, In his failing years, he sold off his world-class tektite collection in successive waves to help […](image)



Bolivia Meteorite Adventure

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 15:19:00 PST

On November 20, 2016 a massive meteorite event took place over Aiquile, Bolivia at approximately 5:00 p.m. local time. While still daylight, Quechua Indian eyewitnesses saw ‘corkscrew’ smoke trails and heard ‘whooshing’ noises followed by sonic booms and then stones literally falling at their feet! Greg and Mike went to Aiquile to hunt for meteorites […](image)

A Three For Me? Meteorite Hunting at the Tucson Show

Tue, 01 Nov 2016 23:30:49 PDT

Back a number of years, I spent more than a few hours at the Tucson Show with Jim Tobin digging through boxes of unidentified NWA stones. There were pallets of rocks with most of the potential meteorites rolling around cardboard board boxes. It was clear that they had already been high-graded by the dealer with […](image)



Two More Newly Classified Meteorites

Tue, 01 Nov 2016 22:18:23 PDT

As I cut meteorites to prepare them for sale I occasionally find one which is deserving of being classified. I would get them all classified if that was practical. But the realities of today are that ordinary chondrites are not being classified by many of the individuals who used to do them just 5 or […](image)



Bob’s Bulletin – Vol. 2 No. 3

Tue, 01 Nov 2016 20:47:08 PDT

Bob’s Bulletin – Vol. 2 No. 3 A newsletter for unclassified meteorites found in the USA. In all of my previous Bob’s Bulletins, I explained the meaning of the phrase “orphaned-meteorites from the USA”. I defined these “orphans” as being unwitnessed-fall Ordinary Chondrite (OC) meteorite “finds” that are recovered in the U.S., but that the […](image)



NWA 1685 LL4 Bessey’s BL

Tue, 01 Nov 2016 18:03:56 PDT

NWA 1685 LL4 is a handsome, interesting meteorite. Numerous stones were introduced in two releases by Dean Bessey and called BL. Individuals are glossy black on the outside and clearly brecciated on the inside. The brecciation is distinct because chondritic clasts differ in shock darkening, impact melt rock is featureless grey and many clasts are […](image)



A New Sort of Australasian Tektite Teardrop

Tue, 01 Nov 2016 17:32:08 PDT

There is a class of Indochinite teardrops that are commonly termed “Hershey’s Kisses” out of morphological similarities to their namesake. Some of these exhibit most unusual twisted tails, and this was to be an article about “twisters”, but I learned something unexpected along the way. There is power in numbers, and as I gathered a […](image)

Wabar

Tue, 01 Nov 2016 12:40:18 PDT

Our Meteorite of the Month is kindly provided by Tucson Meteorites who hosts The Meteorite Picture of the Day. Suzanne writes: This is a highly weathered, to the point of shale, iron meteorite from the Wabar Craters in Saudi Arabia. It has an incredible ‘popped’ appearance, like it has been exploded out along planes. I […](image)
