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 :)

Beautiful, mostly crusted, 36.3g individual of Allende. When I saw the crust on this piece, I just had to have it. Purchased from Gary Swanson who purchased it from Blaine Reed. Enjoy!

I love both the crust, the contraction cracks and the triangular shape. I have a similar Allende weighing 161 grams.
