  1. Was watching One Strange Rock on Netflix this past week and it's a fantastic show. Figured that people here might be interested in it because it touches on many different space topics, astrobiology, and extreme locations here on Earth. Many famous astronauts share their perspectives and Will Smith does a good job narrating it. The second episode briefly talks about meteorites and the impact that wiped out the dinosaurs.
  2. What an awesome find Rocky! Your hard work and diligence paid off. There must be several more pieces out there! Also, let me know how much you'll be selling some of your pieces for!
  3. Mike, do you know if there's any way to stream this online?
  4. Awesome finds Mike, love seeing your in situ photos. What were the average sizes? Largest, smallest?
  5. Mike, awesome finds! Your pictures are great too.
  6. Bill, that would make sense, I also read an article saying that more meteorites will be found as the snow melts. The lakes will still be the best spots to hunt, hopefully they haven't been hit too hard these past few days. There's gotta be lots of little ones still waiting to be discovered...
  7. Does anyone know the conditions on some of the lakes out there? Checked the weather and it looked like it's going to warm up a bit, just wanted to find out if they're safe to walk on because I'm thinking about possibly driving out there this weekend!
  8. That's so cool! Decent sized meteorites too! There's gotta be more out there. Always cool to see fresh meteorites on the bright white snow.
  9. Add a few more zeroes to those numbers and then they start to make more sense 40,000 miles is nothing in terms of distance in our solar system.
  10. Nice find Mike! Just wondering, are these little ones difficult to spot? Or do they stick out pretty well?
  11. If Doppler radar picked up any signatures around the same time as the fireball then it's likely that it dropped meteorites. But until then, we don't know if any meteorites are on the ground. Not all of these fireballs produce meteorites. I'm hoping this one does though!
  12. Just saw this, apparently they have found fragments of the fireball that occurred on September 4th in Canada. Scientists are saying that meteorites in the strewnfield will continue to be found for years to come!
