Nevada Meteorite Picture of the Day [Month]

Previous "Pictures of the Day" can still be accessed at the NV Met PODs Archives!

The NEXT "Picture of the Day" will be POSTPONED until next month. 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: NOT Formally Approved, YET - but a provisional name has been assigned.
Classification: (pending) - Ordinary Chondrite

Credit: Image taken by Robert Verish, on November 4, 2003.

The above image shows this find still in-situ.!
Classification is still pending for this find - a Stony - Ordinary Chondrite - but it is a good example of an "in-situ" meteorite!

Also, this image shows that weathered chondritic stones can be found in a variety of conditions and shades of color.
Meteorite-recovery efforts are on-going at this locality. All new finds will be classified and cataloged, and will appear here in a future NvMetPOD!

A 1 centimeter cube-scale can be seen to the left of the stony in this image.

(Scale: cube is 1cubic cm)

Tomorrow's picture: POSTPONED - until next month.
