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.

The above image appeared on the 31 July '04 Major News about Minor Objects web page.
Click on the above image & see the Asteroid/Comet Connection's daily news journal in which this meteorite image is depicted.
This small find was originally shown on the 30 April 2004 web page of this NvMetPOD site. !
Classification is still pending for this find - a Stony - Ordinary Chondrite
This depiction is a good example of an "in-situ image" - an image of a newly found meteorite, still in-place on the surface in which it was found!
Also, this image shows that weathered chondritic stones can be found in a variety of conditions and shades of color.
Meteorite-recovery efforts are still 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)
