Jason writes:
On November 2, 2018, Jason Snyder found an 823 gr. (1.8lbs) Franconia chondrite, nestled up under a bush in the strewn field while meteorite hunting. To complement his big find, he also found 24 irons from what is commonly called “Iron Alley”. Most of the irons are sub-gram, with one showing exceptional regmaglypts and character. Total weight of the irons is 12 gr.
