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 :)

You are right Anne!! This is a really flat area which might account for the finds. Thanks for the great comments as well all. Cheers

Did you notice that if you enlarge the picture most of the towns (?) in the area are also meteorite names? Mundrabilla, Madura, Cocklebiddy, Forrest.....

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

Australian meteorites have the best names.

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?
