Who knows who this guy is?

Recommended Posts

The back ground looks like Holbrook and the rocks look like Gold Basin. I have no idea who that young man is.

That’s my buddy Skip Wilson. Skip is one of the best meteorite hunters in the USA. Skip holds the title for most US finds.Skip also had a large meteorite fall in his home town of Portales New Mexico.

Sonny wins. Skip is a great guy and has quite a legacy there in Roosevelt County.  I was so impressed with him that I wanted to post his photo to let people who are interested in meteorites but haven’t heard of him have a chance to find out about him for themselves. One meteorite he found has been cited in over 100 scientific publications. He witnessed the Portales meteorite fall in 1998. One of those stones hit a barn right behind his house.  

Those are Roosevelt County meteorites.
