    Pieces have already been found. If youíre 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 wouldnít 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.
    I might go looking this weekend. does the red on the map mean that is where the most debris is?

    Went up there the Saturday after the fireball. Co-worker caught the fall on his dashcam (all the way from South Bend IN), for some reason AMS site keeps deleting it when I try to upload it. Found some pieces of fusion crust in Howell area:

    Looked more black when on top of the snow on the lake. No tracks of any kind anywhere near the pieces. Ruined a couple pieces while inspecting them.

    You did better than I did! I talked to a buddy that's west of the fall area and his yard was covered with hundreds of black specs, about 1/4" in size or less that were laying on the snow. Possibly ash from the explosion that blew westerly. I didn't go over to check it out and a day later, we lost all the snow!

    Wished I coulda gone sooner, but didn’t work out. Lot’s of people were out walking the lakes lookin Saturday. Talked to some ice fishermen on Ore Lake, they knew of a few nice meteorites found on the ice there, which was South of Brighton and the projected trajectory line map. No luck on Lake Chemung, Bishop or Chilson, pieces pictured were on Thompson Lake in Howell.

    speaking of space junk ? I came across an interesting article in air and space magazine and I thought some of you guys and gals might be curious like I am. anywaysin the article they claim a European company is going to launch a project to go up and start cleaning up some of the space junk. yea this blew me away. they claim theres an estimated 750,000 bits and pieces of space junk between marble size and baseball size. and 166 million smaller particles still capable of doing damage. even tiny flecks of paint moving at 5 miles per second that have scarred spacecraft windshields. anyway the article was in august 2017 magazine. so much for curbside pickup ?
