METEORITE HUNTING and COLLECTING

For Discussion related to hunting and collecting of Meteorites With or Without a Metal Detector


Meteorite Forum Guidelines

There are just a few rules here and yup I do enforce them and keep an eye on things as best I can. Here are a few guidelines I'd like you to follow if you will be participating here. This forum is not moderated as heavily as the other sections so please do not enter or open a topic if you think you will be offended. If you are at least respond like an adult or we will remove your post as soon as brought to our attention.

Vulgar and abusive language is not welcome here! Heck a cuss word to get a point across is not so bad, but I think you know what I mean.

I will not host public arguments and pissing matches between individuals here so please just don't do it. When it happens the post most times will simply vanish into cyber space.

Political or Religious posts belong in "Off Topic" but surly you can find other forums that host those discussions if it is your thing, I don't think anyone cares if you are Conservative or Liberal when we are out hunting gold nuggets.

You may not use this forum to advertise any other dealer, store, or product without written permission by owner at any time. Used items are allowed in the classified section.

This forum is not responsible for anything said by it's members at any time. This is a public forum and will remain so and although I can and will occasionally zap "bad content" I don't do it often and so far have never permanently banned a person. Also opinions expressed here do not always represent the opinion of the forum's owner!

Guests are welcome to browse the forum and use the information provided by registered members, but you can not post yourself until you are a registered member.

That is pretty much it my fellow Nugget Shooters so enjoy the forum, keep it clean and play nice.

Well the rules here are a bit different as I welcome meteorites for sale you have collected or found yourself, but no store or dealer ads at any time and this includes eBay links! Naturally the main reason for this forum is education, but collecting is also a big part of this subject. So No crappy or degrading posts or they will be deleted, other than that post away!

    • I saw Comet Neowise (C/2020 F3) rise above the mountains NE of Phoenix this morning from near the Bush Fire burn area at 4:18 a.m. an hour an 15 minutes before sunrise. I was at the Beeline highway and the Bush highway intersection on a remote, dark cul de sac. Comet Neowise was 0 magnitude and easy to see naked eye with a one degree tail. I found it by right angle triangulating from Venus and Capella with the comet rising at the right angle point. Through my 60x20 binocs it had a very distinct, bright nucleus with a sharp edged tail brighter on the left side than the right side. The tail had lots of detail. This is the brightest comet since Hale-Bopp and Hyakutake of the last century.  I usually see 4 comets just with my binocs annually. This is by far the best  It will be an evening sky comet in a few weeks at probably 0 magnitude or brighter with a clear tail. You should try seeing it before it leaves the morning skies. Check out tomorrow morning. Also go to www.spaceweather.com for more info. o Keep looking up, billpeters
    • Hey, everyone!     I just made a video that I think a lot of you will be interested in seeing.  If anyone is interested in a copy of the results just let me know and I will post an image of them.  
    • There's always something to find. 😃
    • I kinda thought you were plating again. It looks neat. Great job!
    • I guess it doesn't really matter if some one actually found it or not. If someone actually found it, everyone except that lucky person and Fenn will be suspicious, all that matters now is that it's not out there any longer so everyone can go back to their normal or not so normal lives since there's nothing to find now!!
