2021 Fall Date Project

The MPOD Caretakers want to present meteorite falls on their fall dates. For example, Sikhote Aline on 12 February.

This Project will not dip into the MPOD archives so the Caretakers will appreciate anything you can contribute.

To reserve a date just let us know. Thank you in advance :)

The birds-eye view of the location where it was found could almost be a closeup of a meteorite itself!

Thanks for this nice example of an early weathered Nullabor chondrite Graham ...almost shale-like! Not sure why the NEMS label has mentioned a find date of 1892 though?
