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 :)

Photos #1 and #2 show an interesting 74.8 gr rather flat piece of Sikhote-Alin that I purchased at the 2004 Ensisheim Meteorite Show. It has a rather smooth front side, a frothy rear side and conspicuous lipping.

Photo #3 shows my Ensisheim diploma - in 2004 I received the honor of becoming an honorary member of the St. George's Confraternity of the Guardians of the Ensisheim Meteorite.

Photo #4 shows my Guardians of the Ensisheim Meteorite plate that members of this Confraternity used to receive when they became members.

Excellent piece. I like seeing that it has a crust still on it. I found a piece of this fall the other day that was shiny all over. I think someone might have buffed/polished it.

Yes beautiful SA. Ensisheim show is one of those trips that you wish for it to be the first time happening again.
