How far is heaven? Seriously, your assumption is flawed...if you found a dead camel would you have cut it open to look for a meteorite??? If a meteorite had hit a tree there would have been visible evidence on the outside, the tree would be still be green (assuming it was alive when hit) and how do you pinpoint a location from only the sound?

If you can, get and read Rocks from Space and you will have a better understanding of strewn fields and locating meteorites...

Three expeditions...how exciting!

that's an excellent place to hunt! I'm not sure about the riddle. Is it possible the tree was dead from something else?
