A man who, along with his sons, found a piece of the meteorite from last week's huge fireball describes it for the local news. Very cool, and his piece is really nice! Since it's from a known fall, it'll be worth something, too. I imagine there could be more than 100 kilos of rocks around, but they'll be extremely difficult to find. I hope they can recover a lot of this one. Tip o' the Whipple Shield to John Draeger.
