Finds & Search Efforts – Meteorites Found!
The first finds were made by Marc Fries and his wife Linda, as seen in the video below. Congratulations, Marc and Linda!
After Marc and Linda’s finds, meteorite hunters from all over the country poured in, and over the next week, many more finds were located, totalling over 500 grams.
One of the early finds was a 180 gram Typically, meteoroids breaks apart during flight through the atmosphere. Much of the material evaporates in a process called ablation, leaving only small stones to find. Occaisionally, large meteor events can... found broken after hitting the road surface, along Highway 98. This large fragment was found by Matt Stream and Roberto Vargas. The Stream-Vargas team began their hunt on Sunday, May 1st, and were lucky to find a very nice chondrite on their first day of hunting. The meteorite material appears to be ordinary chondrite, possible LL type. Other teams are searching as well, and at least one fragment was found a day earlier, along highway.
Raymond Borges and Rob Keeton found more freshly fallen meteorites on Monday, May 2nd, totalling more than 20 grams, along the highway.
