One of my finds in the Whitecourt shrapnel field had a distinct whale tail where it obviously had slammed into something hard and bent up the end of the specimen. I was delighted when Michael Cottingham put up an almost identical Gebel Kamil specimen and I managed to be the winning bidder of it. The two craters and their shrapnel fields are very similar and as I wandered through the Whitecourt strewn field i could see the obvious rays of specimens radiating from the center point of the crater much like the GK field. Sometimes you would find an interesting piece such as this whale tail and you could get a feel for the incredible forces that tore the main mass apart and shattered it into thousands of pieces.
