Dude! There are herds of caterpillars out there right now, it's crazy - never seen anything like it all the years I've been to Franconia.

Clue to people - click on those photos for larger zoom versions!

That said, I will admit I would just walk right past what we are looking at without a clue. I really wonder how many meteorites I have walked past, or kicked aside as being a hot rock. I do therefore appreciate these informative posts!

Without the larger zoom versions feature for photos, picking out the meteorite would have been impossible. I use it all the time when viewing photographs on the forum. Great feature!

My apologies Fred! I've been traveling and haven't been on the forum.

Ok, I don't feel bad now. Having seen it now however it does have a distinctly redder tone than anything else in the picture. Thanks Keith, good example.

      Fragments of meteorites fell in southwest China’s Yunnan Province on June 1 and two pieces fell through villagers’ house roofs while one fell on the dry ground and another one was found in a cornfield.

      Here is a good video of the meteor striking the ground turning it into many meteorites!

      Got out to Holbrook Arizona to hunt Meteorites with a few friends. Ended up with 168 Grams of meteorites, a few coins and items from the railroad. Eyeballed the meteorites, and used the Equinox 800 for the items. The Equinox 800 would hear the LL/LL6 Holbrook meteorites with no discrimination. As soon as I put discrimination on, I could not hear the meteorites. I could not hunt with discrimination off because of all the trash on the side of the railroad tracks...

      I have been using the GM1000 for maybe 20 hours, covered some (often difficult and shifting) ground and found what I normally would find, mostly trash, most interesting so far an old key. So far so good. It is not impossible that there might be some gold to find, but highly unlikely. I am trying to dig every clear signal.
      I am mainly out to find meteorites, and I am still unsure how not to overlook a possible meteorite.
      Very, very often I would get a clear signal with iron characteristic. When I remove the ground cover, it often slowly fades away. Not sure what that is. Sometimes I do find small corroded iron crumbs (then the signal does not fade). But most often nothing.
      Also, very often the GM1000 would give a really strong signal, but it is not possible to localize, because it just fades away even before I notice if it was an iron signal or not. I assume due to the auto tracking, so this might indicate a hot rock.
      But what would I have to expect from a meteorite? If there is iron, also as quite tiny grains, the signal should not just fade, is this correct? So I do not have to worry about the signals from hot rocks?
      Thanks for help.

      I was going out to watch the meteor shower tonight and detect nuggets in the desert but it is cloudy.  
      If you are in clear skies this is the night!
