Welcome Visitors, to the World of Meteorites!

Suddenly, you notice that your surroundings have become much brighter and look toward the sky. You can’t help but notice the streak of bright light making its way across the sky at what seems to be tremendous speed! The light becomes so bright that your body casts a shadow, and it looks like the sun might break across the horizon at any moment. The owl and cricket fall silent. You stand speechless and follow the streak of light toward the far horizon, where it meets with the land and disappears. Only then do you notice the smoke train left in the sky after the flash of light and what sounds like hissing from a gigantic electric power line. You wonder to yourself, “What was that?” but before you can answer, a sonic boom hits you squarely, and you instinctively recoil, followed by another, softer boom. You look back to where the meteor disappeared at the horizon, and other thoughts race through your mind, “Where did it come from? What exactly was it? How long has it been traveling?” and the final question, “I wonder if it hit?” That is the allure of the meteorite.

I.M.C.A. wishes to thank Dr. Walter Branch for his intellectual contribution.
