Meteorite Crashes Through Ceiling, Lands Next To Woman’s Pillow


Recommended Posts

It's not gold related, nor is it coin and relic but a lot of us also search for space rocks... talk about pennies from heaven...

 What can I say? Hard rain predicted for 40 days and 40 nights so I'm stuck inside so the forum better be ware. But I've started working on a plan. Anybody have a pair of Aardvarks?

Jump on a flight and head down to Vegas, rent a car and drive an hour and you'll be on the gold fields producing stuff like this...

Yes I know the link's been posted previously potential Karen's, no need to remind me.. simply expressing to Klunker that he's never far from gold, regardless of the weather. 😉

The only limiting factor is you and how much desire you have to succeed.

You can have the 2 i got---We just got a 2 day break from a 10000 day rain it seemed....

I noticed the boat was listing more than it usually does in the evening,,(lol)--- checked the bilges and yep---- full --- my 110 bilge pump had shut down for some reason---- adding back a redundant 12 volt system and pumping things out the rest of the day----- will pull the 110 unit and give her a good clean up.

Carry on

I was curious (also skeptical) about that estimate.  I think he just used the number of recorded events which roughly met this criterion (struck a house), estimated the number of houses, possibly estimated the amount of 'cross section' fraction that a bed covers.

Almost no one ever gives an uncertainty around their numbers.  For this one, I think the uncertainty may be a factor of 10 in either direction.  Just my WAG (but at least I gave one)!

I don’t know much about meteorites but how does that not burn the bed or the ceiling?

      I have been pretty consistent finding a few meteorites hunting the gold basin placers lately, nice finding something in between finding a nugget. I’m averaging at least a tiny piece of gold maybe about 75% of the time most of these have been shallow 3” down or less and ring strong out on the 6000 like a large caliber bullet on the surface, they are a great motivator to dig all the trash sounding targets because they sound just the same.

      Hi Guys, 
      Found a possible meteorite near Coolgardie (West Australia) last Friday.  
      I'm in the process of getting an authority to either confirm or decline it as a proper meteorite.  I've had two agencies reply so far who are quite confident its the real deal and the most likely candidate is a 'H Chondrite'.
      It was found while I was gold detecting and produced a very strong signal on my Minelab 7000.  Depth about 200mm.  No other ironstones or hot-rocks in the area. Very quiet ground.
      Fingers crossed!
      Anyway, it was gently extracted with my plastic scoop in easy digging soil and came as 5 separate fragments that I managed to make fit together back home once I washed all the soil of them pretty nicely!  Went together like a jigsaw!
      Here's some pictures.
      Cheers folks.
      Jim.

      Good morning!
      Hoping for a little help with this rock.  I found it with my Excal in the Boise river(South West Idaho).  It was a faint dull sound with the Excal so I picked it up and tossed it in the bag hoping for some gold after I rinsed the sand off later.  No signs of gold, but it is quite odd.  Got the Equinox out at home and it reads -6 to -8 but faint.  Maybe a meteorite of sorts?  It was in an area of the river that has a fairly strong constant flow.  Approximately 58g and 6cm x 3.5 cm x 2cm height.
      Appreciate any help!

      I need help identifying this rock please. I found this around Louisiana a few weeks back. To me it looks like raw Platinum or an ore maybe. I’m not really good at this yet haha. It’s not magnetic at all, it’s weight is 3.7 grams, and it’s streak is too hard to get, as it only scratches the plate. So possibly even a meteorite? Idk  heh. Thanks you!!
