I returned from Michigan yesterday with a few rocks in tow. This is a complete individual from the January 16 event. One of the surprising things about the recovery of this fall is the short time it took to find the rocks. Robert found the first stone in 15 minutes or less, and it was probably 15 minutes or less from the first find until I found the second one. In about 4 hours Robert, Darryl Landry and myself had found 6 stones! It was truly a great day. The strewn field was only 1 hour from my Michigan home, what a dream come true!

Dimensions are 1 inch by 1 inch by 1.25 inches and it weighs 37.1 grams. I found this rock on the morning of January 18,2018. It's the second stone found.

Thanks for the comments and congrat's! Yes Graham, that is a popped chondrule. It happened 1 or 2 days after I found it. A chondrule popped out of my other one as well. I should ad that the material is quite crumbly and doesn't want to be sanded or polished.

Photo 4 looks slightly striated; in other words, it looks flight-marked. Congratulations, Larry !

Great to see such a fresh insitu photo....is that a popped chondrule on one edge Larry...indeed a dream come true having it so close....Barwell came down just 10 miles from me but unfortunately I was only 9 years old and never got over there at the time....been looking ever since :-)
