In 2012 we traveled to Australia to see the Total eclipse on Nov 14. I couldn't pass up a chance to make a trip out to the Henbury craters. Svend Buhl and Don McColl's book had just come out and I poured through it on the trip over. Beautiful spot and a lovely bunch of craters. We had a hot 43C (109F) day on our walk about it. The next day we visited the Museum in Alice Springs and I saw the 45 kg meteorite as shown on page 84 of the Henbury book I was toting about ("Henbury Craters and Meteorites" by Svend Buhl and Don McColl).

Thanks Svend and Don.
