Near Seagrove, NC(15 miles) where I have my shop, back in the 1930 ish time frame, a meteorite hit and a part was recovered (79 KG). I have found a little info but is there a good website for getting the data on landing sites and direction of the strewn fields. The Lat/Long I have puts it at a church which makes me thing it was a generalized location and might be off by several miles.

Since I am new to this part of prospecting, I don't really know what kind of data exist.

Dis, there is not likely to be any good official info...back then they often named the meteorites by the nearest post office...reading through old newspaper archives would be a likely source for eyewitness accounts. From that info you may be able to establish an idea of the strewn field-if there is one.

good luck
