Meteorite falls, also called observed falls, are meteorites collected after their fall from space was observed by people or automated devices.

Murmansk is a a port on the northern coast near the border with Norway. I think it's still winter in that part of Russia,

and any meteorites will be hidden by snow, unless it fell near the city, which is quite large. The books say more than

300,000 people. Any fall north of the Arctic Circle is iffy.

Hi Ben.

Those Russian meteorite hunters are quick to move. Honestly, I'm surprised nothing has turned up yet. You must be right about it still being winter there.

You are right about how fast those Russian meteorite hunters are. I'm sure they are searching hard, and a find could turn up any day. The

spring thaw is a long time off. I worked the GPAA Gold Trip near Nome in 1985, and I remember that the ice did not go out until about

July 4th. So, until the big thaw, we need someone to call in, with a hole in their roof, or something like that.
