The NEXT "Picture of the Day" will be POSTPONED
until next month.
Previous "Pictures of the Day" can still be accessed at the NV Met PODs Archives!
I apologize for any inconvenience. But, in the meanwhile, I will continue to accept any images or photos of any Nevada meteorites for submission to "Nevada Meteorite Picture of the Day". Your contributions are always appreciated.
Discover the Solar System - right here in the Nevada desert!
Each day a different image or photograph of a NEVADA meteorite will be featured, along with a
brief explanation written by a meteorite-recovery expert.

Name of Nevada Meteorite: No FORMAL Name - just newly recovered
Actually, there were two individual stone meteorites that were reconstructed from the fragments found in this cluster at this locality!

Not much to say. These stones were so recently found that there is not too much that can be said about them.
Nevertheless, the finders have already contacted me to have these finds documented. In fact, the stony in the foreground, has already been sampled by me, and a type specimen has already been submitted for making a thin-section for eventual classification. A classification is expected before the Tucson Show in February.
A cube-scale can be seen resting on top of the largest stone in this image.
(Scale: cube is 1cubic cm)
Tomorrow's picture: POSTPONED - until next month.
