    When I joined this forum, I had hoped to make contact with other meteorite enthusiasts with whom I could exchange information, resources, and perhaps a stone or two. I did not anticipate the schoolyard bullying and adolescent drivel that this post, for one, has degenerated to. It is a public forum and if you don't want to hear what a member has to say, just keep scrolling! If on the other hand, you prefer poking the dog with a stick because it amuses you to do so, you need counseling and I need to look elsewhere for intelligent life. I'm out of here.

    I happened to be standing on our front porch last Thursday (Oct 4) at 6:32 PM, when a very bright meteor streaked over the town of Tucson, headed west on a rather flat trajectory. There's a fresh meteorite out there somewhere folks!

    How to make Authentic Man Made Lunars

    Synthetic meteorites...? What will happen if the friggin' Chinese get their hands on this technology? The market will be flooded with bogus irons! https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.1111/j.1945-5100.1948.tb00038.x
  5. A slight tangent from the thread, but since some of these artifacts are knapped from Libyan Desert Glass (and exhibit conchoidal fractures), I'm gonna go with it. http://ancientpoint.com/category/29-antiques_antiquities_neolithic__paleolithic_/page_13.html

    Congrats. You make finding meteorites look easy.

    Cool Fly Over Today

    Nice! What are the two much smaller features in the upper right portion of the pic? The closest of the two looks like a much smaller crater in a couple pics I've seen.

    Got Gibeon?

    I have some nice Gibeon fragments that need a new home. The angular shapes are all natural. They total 31 grams and I'm asking $100 for the lot.

    Meteorite Hunting With A Twist

    There is a moon rock (not meteorite) on display at the San Diego Air and Space Museum. I'm sorry to say some genius decided to entomb the little bugger in acrylic which is a detraction for me but it's still pretty cool.

    Tailgate meets?

    You all do understand that it would be 1 free beer and 10 or 12 straws, right...?

    Tailgate meets?

    I have met Twink through the Club and she is a nice lady. I acquired a nice little Vaca Muerta section from her not long ago. I like mesos.

    Bouse strewn field

    There is some resemblance to the NWA 869 in this pic. Here are a "few" more pics. https://www.lpi.usra.edu/meteor/metbull.php?code=31890

    Bouse strewn field

    Anytime it becomes worth the trouble to set up a sting, microchips could be inserted into NWAs like they do it with protected cacti.

    Bouse strewn field

    If you did that, I wouldn't count on selling too many legit stones from then on. The Met community is pretty small and word spreads. It might not matter to many hunters that yours was a social experiment.
