Vidal Meteorite

Recommended Posts

Years ago I read about a huge, shallow trajectory meteor that allegedly roared over the then-populated railroad town of Vidal, CA sometime between 1905 and 1910. The wind gust and heat were felt by people on the ground. Does anyone know about this? Thanks in advance.

From what I know about meteors and meteorites, I'd say this story is complete nonsense..no offense.

Absolutely nothing online about it. If you know the name of the magazine where you read about this incident, you might be able to find the actual article somewhere. But I'm deeply skeptical..

There is a treasure story about it in....Lost Mines and Buried Treasures by John D Mitchel.

If it exists I don't believe it was ever found....nor the gold he found searching for it...
