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 :)

I have not so many slices of stone-meteorites in my vitrine, but I couldn't resist this amazing chondrule-flurry: densely crowded chondrules of all types, colors and sizes, carbonaceous inclusions etc.

There are several bleached chondrules which is evidence for widespread aqueous processes on the parent body of this chondrite. Fascinating!

Very nice and multicolored. You litterally can get lost within the condrules by looking at it. Imagine time and circumstances when it formed*
