Here are the ones we found over Memorial Day Weekend 2012 and the first one my wife found (her hand and fragment on Wikipedia). 24.8g total of 10 fragments.

We heard it breaking up over our heads, the wife saw the trial in the sky, then later found out it was a fall.

BIL saw it from Mariposa and both his sisters found fragments.

She owned it for about 45 minutes. $5k

Still have the last one the wife found 1g. Keeping it for awhile. Cool to have in our collection.

GE strewn field. Many still out there. Our grouping is all those to the east, we live just to the east of those. Used the "hand full of gravel" method for the search. Toss it out in front of you and see where the stuff falls. I told my crew, "we're looking for the fine sand at our feet" not the big rocks out further. Walked the sub- division below us as the roads are north and south oriented. 30 days after the fall and we killed it, finding three the first day.
