Bodies are being found. How about Lake Mead meteorites?


Recommended Posts

 If someone does find one it would probably be by a hobbyist using a metal detector and not someone looking specifically for meteorites.

You'd find a lot of junk from decades of fishing, partying,etc. I doubt if it would be worth the time.

I wonder if you’d even be able to tell they’re meteorites with the minerals from teh water around them.  The reservoirs around here leave an ugly white deposit around rocks as the water dries up.

Also, the lake is only about 70 years old, there would be records of any recent falls in the area that may have landed in the lake.  Not long enough for anything to accrue otherwise...

Plus the lake button was soft before it was exposed. Anything there would likely be buried.
