  1. Badger, Your stone has none of the visual characteristics of a meteorite. Instead, it has the visual characteristics of not being a meteorite. Magnetic stones are endless in every corner of the US, especially in Arizona. Your rock has no meteoritic crust, has uncharacteristic vesicles (holes), and apparent molded, terrestrial looking structure. Most meteoritic centers, including ASU, won't bother to look at your rock since they get about a thousand requests every year with no more than one or two actually being meteorites. Here is my monthly post: Take a look at your rock. If it glistens like a crystal structure (ie: quartz) at any point in the rock it can’t be a meteorite. If it has layers, it can’t be a meteorite, it’s sedimentary. If it has small gas bubbles in it, it can’t be a meteorite. It’s basalt. If it is moderately magnetic it is not a meteorite. If there is a thick crust on it, it can’t be a meteorite. File off a corner or cut it. It won’t diminish its value. If there is all bright silvery metal it can’t be a meteorite. If it is all grey metal it can’t be a meteorite. If there is black crust as thin as a fingernail, and crazing on the outside of the rock, it might be a meteorite. If there are small silver specks visible in the filed off section, it might be meteorite. There are billions of magnetic rocks in the US, none of which are meteorites. Anyone can find magnetic earth stones nearly everywhere. Just take a strong magnet and drop into sand and you will see what I mean. Check our O Richard Norton’s, “Rocks from Space” or visit the Arizona State Un. Meteorite Center or other similar facility. billpeters P. S. I'm also on Mesa. You may call me at 602-312-9888 and I'll take a look at what you've got.

    meteorite find or just a rock

    Hey Gary, It certainly is not a meteorite. It looks to be sedimentary with a matrix of pebbles and, possibly, fossil bits. It has no characteristics of a meteorite. That is not crust, but weathering of different parts of a long ago broken rock. All of the interior structure looks terrestrial. FYI: There has never been a lunar meteorite found in North America so far. Here is my weekly post: Take a look at your rock. If it glistens like a crystal structure (ie: quartz) at any point in the rock it can’t be a meteorite. If it has layers, it can’t be a meteorite, it’s sedimentary. If it has small gas bubbles in it, it can’t be a meteorite. It’s basalt. If it is moderately magnetic it is not a meteorite. If there is a thick crust on it, it can’t be a meteorite.

    Is This A Space Rock?

    Yes, mixtures are common. It is not a meteorite. billpeters
  5. Nonsensically overpriced. They have about $3000.00 of meteorite. and are more comparably priced at about $50,000 for the workmanship. billpeters

    What is this?

    Entel, It has the visual appearance of a possible meteorite. I have a larger one just like it found in Arizona, which is extremely magnetic. It is confirmed to not be a meteorite though. I would expect yours to be magnetic. You need to have an expert look at it in person to verify if it is likely to be a meteorite. Then have it tested. By the way, the toilet lid test is on the underside. billpeters P.S. If it is not magnetic it is unlikely to be a meteorite.

    Best Ebay hoaxes yet, enjoy!

    Morlock, You can see his other auctions on Ebay. His handle is jameschan8 . Maybe you can check out the ones pulled off of Mars by a passing comet. They ought to be interesting.

  9. Only $4950.00 From Seller: .please read CAPS, in middle of updates along this. ....page.First A. PIECE FIT FOR N.A.S.A.'s STUDY OF AERODYNAMICS!!! Holy Crap!CHECK OUT THESE NEW PIX. OF ANOTHER NEW PIECE TOO!!(the other Half I found!! THE TAIL FINS... THESE 2 PIECES FIT TOGETHER SEAMLESSY!!! It broke before hitting Earth,I n the pine tree. I can see melt marks at break-off point. Like 2 3/16" long,Together. Pic.12 is Topside,Pic.11 is bottom of Flight Patterned Orientation,looks like an aeroplane,tail fins& all. No wings on o'fuselage'section,as you can see.Cool!! 1st picture it's UpsideDown,flightwise!4th pic.,top fin is on ruler side,5&6 BottomSide Find is on left side. Last pic. is pointing downwards,It Flew like a dart! Looks Like A Fish Swimning,when you can see its Flight Orientation! AS I KEEP FINDING THE SAME TYPE OF BIRD POOP LOOKING MELTED STONEY MATERIAL,I SERIOUSLY WONDER IF SOME OF THIS FALL MAYBE A SHUTTLE REPAIR, SERIOUSLY!! PERHAPS A TILE REPAIR?! ARE THERE ANY ASTRONAUTS AROUND TO VERIFY THIS?? I WITNESSES ANOTHER FALL, 4 DAYS BEFORE THIS, ONLY A 10TH OF A MILE AWAY I FINALLY FOUND IT,IT'S A SOCCER BALL SIZED VESTICULAR (with dry cut,holes THAT Really Do contain rusted Chrondules,shrinking)!& white resins inside Vestuals! THIS IS THE REASON MY OVEN WAS ON,DRYING MY DISCOVERY from a drying Alcahol bath IN ORDER TO PRESERVE IT'S INTEGRITY.,as the part touching Earth was rusting!! This Is My Theory Now. IF THIS THEORY IS CORRECT,THAT WAS A MAJOR REPAIR JOB, FROM A METEOR IMPACT IN ORBIT. what, 90% lost in Atmospheric burn!?! As a former Tile installer,Epoxy grout Heats Up to Cure,Space is Cold! Plasma & High Pressure create Crystals from minerals... WHAT AN AERODYNAMIC STUDY of a NATURAL PIECE!!! I will take this astounding FALL off as soon as I can figure it out so that I can put into a display,With the other pieces I found, & place them in diagram,at angle it Glided in. Then I'll try an auction for a week,I'm beginning to wonder why I'd sell this freaking amazing gift from above.!! 5th&6th separate pieces I found on my roof today,last day of April.A hunch.2 more found in a 'trail'ive been following across my yard,makes 8 pieces of this& a small carb.chron.Also found on roof,must've knocked Angel turds to earth. This is an EnstatiteAchrondite Meteorite,Similar Only,to an 'Aubrite'...Its Small Crystaline Pebble Like Material.I was watching the skies on The Night before I found this Beautifully Orientated METEORITE,a Melted Stoney weighing (sorry,)24 carats,OR 4.8 GRAMS!(the Last set of pix) in Mohave County,AZ. I HEARD a noisey commotion in the Pines, thought I saw an angel sitting up there out of corner of my eye too(plasma field),Hence the name I gave to it!(Angel Turd!) Lol! True!! The Closest terrestrial rock is called Analite,Seriously!That it visually compares to. I walk this area in my driveway 20x a day,it showed op on 13 March,2017.I baked it because it seemed to look to be absorbing humidity & damp earth,even though it's HardStoney. It looks like it dripped Because the Stone DID!. During Atmospheric Entry. I ALMOST couldn't believe the rest of the dozen found pieces were really rocks,'till I Cracked 1 open! . THEY ARE ET MELTS!!! I had Believed they May have been from an Ancient Lakebed on Mars!,Being so Hydrous,PossiblyEjected by a large Impact OR more likely,I believe, a passing Comets Electrical "lightning" pulling terrain up like an electric sky plow!!...Maybe thats why so little Mars Shocked Materials?!? Lightning travels UP,Like a Sprite. It is a feldspar Like material full of hundreds of Spinels or burnt Carbons?,as I've seen in Today's finds out front yard. I didnt mess much with this Astounding Fall.with tiny Black spinels,or carbon crystals,Chrondulets on one side,seen, Oven Barely shrunk the whiteish Fusion Crust, now more greyish on 1 side,, a little more than it was,a micromillimeter (cracks in fusion crust)1/2 hr@350*F.Dried,I thought,with The Meteorite I Also Witnessed 4 days before found 4th day,Just before a 2 week downpour. 30+Small,Melted Pieces I've found now (5 make it into the books). The 'Tail Fin' OF THE ANGEL POOP COLLECTION THAT I FOUND,onTODAY,27APR.'17! IT' Is INCLUDED WITH PURCHACE, It Completes It! it was Under a bag of topsoil I accidentally laid down,over it,as I saw & found my Original 'angel turd'(last pix.s) Before setting the sack down, OR it would have been stepped on & broken a hundred times by now!. Its another 5.1Gram piece of Angel Poop! Tail Section... IT HAS MICROSCOPIC BLUE FIBERS,poking through fusion crust cracks& pimple-like rolled tubelike, inside of micro "volcanoes"!!! I'm Freaked Out too much to touch it anymore, they look like split ends on hair..?!?!?! Way too small though!.It may have been caught from my Shirt Pocket,but it Sure Dont Look Like it! Maybe a Natural CarbonNano Fiber of some sort?!I've seen fibrous materials all the time,but these look like they worked their way out. My gemological microscopes light went out,so I can't really explore this yet. I Answer All questions Gladly! But a socialpath,fuzzy eel ,won't stop harassing my every move that I make,so..!! I didn't bake This piece,for fear of decomposition like I did the 1st when I feared, when I found the 1st Piece,Because 'Fin' was Outside for a month already... TheseLook to be growing,or Angel Feather pieces? They are enclosed into the Meteorite.(Reference my NASA thoughts above,Glove materials,or a NASA Patch)... Back to the 1st Oriented "Aubrite" 'Turd'.... It Has a couple tiny opened areas on it from the fall. I'm a studying Meteotiticist & collector for 40 years. All of mine ARE as Close as I've Stated & Diagnosed in my Taxonomy notes.No matter How Unusual.Fear of,& hiding the truth Deletes what Needs to be known! Try using Remote Viewing skills for your own answers,It'll add a whole new dimension to your collection! Especially for the Hunt!! I'm too close to this piece to front load it. This baby was Heard to fall,as I've stated!!!. Just Too Cool a Piece! Have fun with it Shipping will be $10 in USA sale & I'll include a field microscope. PayPal. . Thank you. It's Easy to get a Hundred 1OZ gold Coins,But THESE SPACE ROCKS ARE MIRACLES,For Sure!!! I found Another piece that landed & Stuck (splashed)in the tree,it fell into the well with wood still in it, that didn't charcoal.. I'm going to put all dozen or so of this FALL,This summer,up for auction,only the 2 are aerodynamic,the rest are 'drips'that landed along a trail I followed. This is Only up now because I can't take down. You'll have a chance to buy these at a much higher price(i hope) this summer,along with other rarities, after i make some displays with/for them. Thank you for looking at this natural wonder. ...1 June17' Ive found about 40 pieces of this material around a 1 mile area now,New Falls! I believe that I got the most AWESOME pieces in my yard,the orientated "sky-shark"& the bird poop looking rock drips too,1 with about a hundred spinel crystals just under the White Fusion Crust. I may have to have this recorded,or just give buyer many pieces for being able to study this Wonder. Seller's other doubtful meteorites for sale on Ebay which land on his property about once per week: Enjoy, billpeters

    Meteorites??

    Those are not meteorites. billpeters

    On the price of 3 South American stones

    Take the money and run, Even if that is a real meteorite, it is far more money than that rock is worth. $15,000 USD? Why do you think that these stones are meteorites? billpeters

    Tiangong 1 Reentry

    The very calm solar corona has added a few more laps to the Tiangong 1 Satellite. I estimate it will come down now over the North Africa/Mediterranean Sea/southern Europe area or the Middle East if its reentry is near Apr 2, 2018 2:00 UTC (Apr 1 7:00 pm PDT). billpeters
  13. Tiangong 1’s decaying orbit strongly favors a northern hemisphere reentry point. On each of its passes into the northern hemisphere the satellite drops to its lowest perigee latitude at about 30.5+ degrees north. It should be at this latitude that will begin to reenter the Earth’s atmosphere. It will drop further over the next 2000 miles or so until it reaches about 62 miles high and begins to burn up. Major breakup will occur at about 48-45 miles high. I would expect it to be observed and pieces fall somewhere between 36+ and 42+ north latitude. This part of the Earth is 50% land. My guess on a fall zone (if over land) would be Central Asia, East Asia, Southern Europe, or the USA, pretty much in that order. The very calm solar corona these past few days will extend the reentry to, my guess, late morning to early afternoon April 1, US time. I kinda hope it returns to China. For latest orbital details go to and reclick every 10 minutes for further updates http://www.aerospace.org/CORDSuploads/TiangongStoryboard.png To observe one more time yourself before it crashes got to www.heavens-above.org and enter your observing address and click Tiangong 1. billpeters

    Buyer Beware

    I wrote to Oldprospector1948 twice and he responded twice, saying: Oldprospector1948 Thank you for your message but your coming off the wrong way about my post.I don't go around saying about other people rocks and you have no reason saying any thing about mine.I am not saying to upset you so lets just stop here. Thank You and have a nice day. Billpeters It is still not a meteorite. Your are deceiving people and taking their money for a false rock. Go to any college geology department or any rock club in your area and show them you rock. If you are honest you won't want to deceive people and take their money. I couldn't do that. It is up to you ldprospector1948 I am the most honest person you will ever meet. I recently helped in finding a meteorite bed strewn across a large area in the Lost Basin not far from the Gold Basin area in Northern Az. Many of these types of specimens found have material that has been proven otherwise. This particular one that you are finding fault with maybe what you say but this find has many different types. Did you read my details about the find? "On earth, the most common form of silicone dioxide is quartz. But, in planetary dust, meteorites and lunar rock, the mineral predominantly has a different structure, known as cristobalite comes mixed with yet another form of silica mineral called seifertite" July 4, 2017. So, what you see is not what you think, as new information about meteorites are always being researched & found!" I try to study as much about planatary rocks as possible and keep up with any new discoveries. But with that in mind, if this bothers YOU that much, I'll remove this item too make you happy, I'm not out to make money on my find but to share it with others. Have a nice day! billpeters I then thanked him for removing the listing. Cheers! billpeters

    I’ve got it who wants it?

    Tom, You shouldn't give him a high bid on the first offer. Otherwise he may get greedy. Now if he throws in that crystal-like base it is definitely worth it. Lunatic sic, Your rock is not even close to being a meteorite. It has no value. Here is my weekly post: Take a look at your rock(s). If it glistens like a crystal structure (ie: quartz) at any point in the rock it can’t be a meteorite. If it has layers, it can’t be a meteorite, it’s sedimentary. If it has small gas bubbles in it, it can’t be a meteorite. It’s basalt. If it is moderately magnetic it is not a meteorite. If there is a thick crust on it, it can’t be a meteorite. File off a corner or cut it. It won’t diminish its value. If there is all bright silvery metal it can’t be a meteorite. If it is all grey metal it can’t be a meteorite. If there is black crust as thin as a fingernail, and crazing on the outside of the rock, it might be a meteorite. If there are small silver specks visible in the filed off section, it might be meteorite. There are billions of magnetic rocks in the US, none of which are meteorites.
