    11/15/12 My 5 year old granddaughter, Calle, is in Children's Hospital with a brain tumor they just found tonight. WE NEED YOUR PRAYERS, please...

    Pallasite meteorite. This stony-iron meteorite is often called "celestial stained glass", and from this photo it is easy to see why. One of the most beautiful things in the Solar System.

    Lunar meteorite. One of the rarest types of meteorites and one of the most difficult to identify. Lunar meteorites strongly resemble terrestrial breccia rocks and they are metal poor, so they do not react to metal detectors. Notice the outer surface is covered in a brownish fusion crust. Lunar meteorites often have a distinctive crust that is different from other meteorites. These meteorites were blasted off the surface of the Moon millions of years ago by a massive asteroid impact.

    Thomas Jefferson was rumored to comment on the Weston meteorite fall of 1807 : "I should sooner believe that Yankee professors should lie than that stones should fall from heaven". Jefferson never actually said that, and nobody is sure where the erroneous quote came from. At any rate, stones do indeed fall from heaven.
