The Fever

Recommended Posts

I'm well aware of the "gold" fever we all get after getting a taste of some yellow in the pan or at the end of our coils but when it comes to meteorites it seems to affect people really, really different.

My experience was with the Sutter's Mill Meteorite that came down right over my head and my group was the most successful in collecting some of the fragments. I met some really great people when hunting and also met those who would not be deterred in making their rock into a meteorite even though it was a wrong.

One woman would not even accept the opinion of the lead scientist at UC Davis as she continued to rant on the web about her stone. What is it about meteorites that makes people go off the rails wanting it to be a space rock so bad?
