    My wife, son, and I were sitting in the living room when it happened, we thought the slow plow dropped his blade hard on the neighbors driveway (our houses are so close to each other).

    neither to me actually .


    But if I had to choose, Probably the nuke.

    PreperationH can be used for Asteroids
    and the pieces would be Very Valuable

    a Nuke ? Depends on which way the wind blows I guess

    Think about it this way.

    if your car is hit by a Meteorite it is worth $100,000.00 to a Collector.

    Imagine how much you could get if an Asteroid hits it

    SO WHOS GOIN TO MICHIGAN TO SEARCH FOR METEORITES ?

    I’m a meteorite hunter and can offer a few suggestions to those looking to hunt. Attached is a picture of the current fall area.

    Pieces have already been found. If you’re looking to hunt the area I would suggest finding large flat public areas. Scan the ground and look for rocks that standout, they will be black. Using a magnifying glass look for signs of melting on the surface.

    I think the snow could be the biggest hinderance to hunting. Normally you wouldn’t need a metal detector for a fresh fall but with the snow they may be necessary.

    The value will depend on the type. I found one a few years ago that weight 5g and I got around $15k for it.

    Ironic that the park I got kicked-out of last year for detecting is on the fringe area of where the current fall area in NorCal Digger's post. Now they will have to change the sign to say, "No Looking for Meteorites"!

    Living about 50 miles from supposed impact we are bombarded by local news stations on this. I just saw a clip on the news, several people in a field with metal detectors, about a foot off the ground, swinging them like weed wackers, while they were speed walking One looked like the coil was on backwards

    Now there's something new. Never thought of putting a coil on backwards. I guess, if it works, why not? (just a thought) ╦╦Ç

    You are supposed to walk backward when detecting right?
