I see now that during the recent "Great North American Eclipse" many of us had the same ideas regarding the use of meteorites. I was going to make it into a meteorite list competition but that fizzled as the time got away on me.

Here are my attempts at viewing the eclipse shadow through a tuna strainer projecting onto three meteorites 1) Bluewing individual, 2) Sikohte-Alin, and 3) large slice of Gibeon with Thomson / Widmanstätten lines.

I toyed with the idea of using LDG and Moldavites as color filters in front of the strainer for a more colourful photo. Maybe next time....?

Nice complete (?) specimen of Bluewing, Paul. That's one meteorite you don't see often. Was it found by Rob Matson like the others?
