Found it fogg found Meteorite no. 7

Monday, May 23, 2016Victoria, Australia

Years ago I visited an exhibition about meteorites with my children. The guide told us about big meteorites crashing onto earth and leaving big craters. The kids were stunnend! Imagine a big stone crashing into the playground!!! "That happens very seldom", the guide explainend, "but every day tiny particles of stardust rain on your head and hair, so tiny, you can not feel them!" Wow! The kids felt like the little girl in the "Star Taler" fairy tale.

The meteorite no. 7 and its brothers are more of the earth crashing kind. Lying in its tank it does not radiate any magical feeling. But imagine its beautiful inner structure and were it comes from!

Thank you for the explanations and for bringing me here! There were a lot of other amazing rocks, too!

infoAn Earthcache is an educational form of a virtual cache. The reward for these caches is learning more about the planet on which we live - its landscapes, its geology or the minerals and fossils that are found there. Many Earthcaches are in National Parks. Some are multi-cache in form, and some have a physical log book located in or close to a Visitor Center. Earthcaches are developed in association with the Geological Society of America.
