If you find a larger piece of this meteorite then the 'sky is the limit' price wise,the lucky finder would be over the moon and out of this world ???

Is there currently snow on the ground in that area?  @rvpopeye should know.

I hope this doesn't lead to people bringing in false specimens (aka 'meteor wrongs'), innocently or (particularly) otherwise.  I wonder what the chances are that a piece as big as a kilogram even exists, but they did say they would buy smaller pieces.

Hope someone finds a piece of this! 

The only discouraging thing here is the terrain. Heavily wooded areas with lots of snow. But there's still a chance. This is also the first radar-witnessed fall in Maine, which is pretty cool.

I just checked this out ,, It's in Calais. That's right on the coast where it meets Canada. 

It's bare there. No snow. 

There is also a lot of people , including a U of Maine campus just down the road in Machias.. 

They'll all be all over it ! 

I have an older cousin that lives there but is traveling IIRC.

4-5 hour drive for me. , being with mom every day is worth more than $25k to me and I'd have a very small chance of finding anything anyway...

The locals will have seen it or know somebody that can give a pointy finger  !  

I wish them all luck. OH AYUH !


Too cool ! Missed me by THAT much !?

Sorry 'bout that Chief !

This is crazy! 

It is actually in the town of Waite.  I Lived there from birth to age 14.  I played in the woods there.

There are logging roads running all around that area.  I learned to drive on those roads.  I still have lots of family in the area. 

Very heavy woods, but pretty flat terrain.

I should take all of my machines and get 30 people to make a "FOD" walk line in those woods lol.

Probably the most exciting thing to happen in a town with a population under 200.

Now that’s some hot rocks!  Shame it didn’t fall over in Idaho, all we get is China’s crappy balloon going over.

I saw it was in Waite but Calais was on the the map I posted.  

Close enough for uptah camp.

All we usually get from the sky is pollution from west of us (It'a ALL west of us ?)

Jamie , you headed downeast ??

I'm imagining that there were a lot of locals buying detectors last week !   Maybe start a rental biz ?


Where are you now ? I'm in the Brunswick area....
