140913 - Image of the Month for September

Postby Matt Smith » Sat Sep 13, 2014 1:02 pm

The phrase "better late than never" is definitely appropriate in the case of this 275g Allende (CV3) slice. Yes, that really is two hundred and seventy five grams of CV3 meteorite! The famous and scientifically important Allende fall showered Pueblito de Allende, Mexico with previously very scarce CV3 meteorites in February 1969.

Many thanks to Martin Goff for providing this image, I should point out he sent it to me in August, the late update is entirely my fault.
