The 2012 Tucson Gem & Mineral Show

Some images of meteorites by the people that collect them taken at the Show.

Because the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show occurs each year during the first half of February, which is the same time that the Meteorite-Times.com articles are published, the editors have decided to postpone this current issue until the end of February. This delay would give everyone time to return from the Show, digest what had transpired, and then if desired, write an article about the Show. Well, I think it's a great plan, but with all of the events that have transpired this past month since the Show, it now seems like a distant memory.
As I said, "it was a good plan", but how do you plan for a meteorite fall in the middle of Texas? With so much attention drawn to locating the meteorite fall in eastern Texas, and now the fall in South Carolina (even as I write this article), the "recently" concluded Tucson Gem Show of 2012 already seems like ancient history. But I thought it would be nice to give readers (particularly, those that didn't get to attend this years Show and have to vicariously view it from the lenses of various photographers) the convenience of having all of those disparate links listed on one webpage.

(See below, "REFERENCES")

And besides, I can use this article next year as a review to remind me of what I saw this year, and may quite possibly see at next years Tucson Show 2013. So, instead of the "usual" article, this month's edition of "Bob's Findings" will simply be a list of links to various people's images that documented what had occurred way back - 23 days ago - during the first weekend of February 2012.

Enjoy!
