    Micrometeorites - thinking of trying for them

    I am running out of space for my meteorite collection and just read a book about MM's and got thinking that trying to find them would be fun.

    Is anyone here hunting them? And how do are you doing it?

    I added meteorites to my website https://solarhead.shutterfly.com/meteorites

    Here is my collection and why I am out of space

    Micrometeorites are easy for most people to find. And they don't require a lot of material or skill ()

    You will need a thick piece of plastic, a heavy substantial magnet, and access to a drainspout. Wrap the magnet in the plastic, and run it around the ground and/or near the downspout. You should easily find some debris adherring to the plastic/magnet. At least some of that is meteoric in nature.
