Meteorite Times Magazine Pantar: The Sky is Falling. Really! by Martin Horejsi

Pantar: The Sky is Falling. Really! Lets hope its not a bomb!

Pantar, Philippines is an amazing meteorite. Not for its H5 class, the second most common type of chondrite after the oft-shunned L6. But instead Pantar has several wonderfully detailed descriptions about its 1938 fall and its travel from the island and into our collections. The heavily crusted end section of Pantar in the author’s collection also contains a specimen number from the Jim DuPont collection adding history to its history. The two stories below chronicle the fall of Pantar, and instantly launched Pantar to must-have status for serious collectors.

The activity within the matrix of Pantar is almost as busy as the global events surrounding its fall.

Pantar is an important reminder that a meteorite fall occurs somewhere at some time, and that place and space are forever part of the meteorite’s story. Some landing sites are somewhat benign to the story, but others such as with Pantar, are an essential element that sets this meteorite apart and far and above the average chondrite. So as you add dates and locations to your collection, don’t forget to add the essence of the time and place as well. Because if you ignore the importance of the where and the when of the fall, the meteorite becomes, well, just a meteorite. Until next time‌. The Accretion Desk welcomes all comments and feedback.

Meteorite Times Magazine Griffith Observatory by Jim Tobin

It had been several years since I had been to the Griffith Observatory and my granddaughter had never been so we took her. My wife loves the place too so it was an exciting day for all of us. The parking on the day we went was difficult but as it turned out we did get a spot very close and not down on the approach road. I knew Kayli would want to see the planetarium show so we looked around a little then bought our tickets for the showing in a couple hours. That would give us enough time to see everything and go to the gift shop as well. She had been saving her money for a while and was going to find something cool to get for herself. The exhibits have improved so much over the years. Some are still the classics of the past like the solar spectrum and the solar telescope imaging. The Camera Obscura is the same. The Tesla Coil is in a new location as it has been for the last few years. They do not run it I guess without finding the correct person and twisting his arm. But, that is OK everyone in my family has seen a lot of tesla coils. Making them was a favorite hobby of my dad and I years ago. I still have several around the garage from big ones to little table top size. All kinds from classic monopolar to unusual bipolar types. Some of the new exhibits at the observatory are very nice indeed. The astronomy history ones have small holographic like animations that you watch. Very cool. After you have been to the old portion even with its great new exhibits it is time to run downstairs to the important part where the meteorites, tektites and impact rock exhibits are. As you come into the lower level you meet again, as at the Natural History Museum a display with many offerings from Robert Verish. Bob has put a great many meteorites from California at the Observatory. Other hunters are represented also, but Bob has really given from his heart to Griffith. I tried to get the best shot I could but it was crowded and people were actually getting annoyed with me taking time in front of the display cases to photograph them.

Some where in this photo one of these dots represents Paul’s find and my own find from California. If I every get off my butt I have a couple more that Bob has the information on but that I have never gotten anyone to classify. This picture is a great visual history of the recent and past recovery of meteorites from California.

Down just a couple cases is a display on tektites, it is always nice to see Darryl Futrell’s name on the tags. This display was once upstairs in the old section along with just a few meteorites. I am glad that they

have kept it and put it in a great location.

There was a meteorite and meteor-wrong display. Kayli has seen enough of her grampa’s meteorites all her life. So she took the challenge and tried to find the meteorites mixed with the other items. I am proud to say that she got most of the meteorites and none of the wrongs. They had some good wrongs in there too. One piece of hematite that was quite meteorite looking. She and I both failed to see the one very small stone that was sort of nestled next to another rock. A fun display. Next to the meteorites were a couple of other really neat items to not miss if you visit. The two cosmic ray detectors were new since I visited right after the reopening. They had a very awful cloud chamber years ago. What they have now is so cool it is hard to say enough. You can just stand there and see particle trails of every shape and style with no difficulty at all. None of the old wait for the cloud to form and then try to look real fast before it dissipates. The cloud is vapor at the bottom of an acrylic box and it is always there and so are the particle trails. The spark detector is right next to it and it is like a comic ray bug zapper. Also very cool. The Observatory has some great Canyon Diablo meteorites. Here are the two in the meteorite area. I always wish I knew when specimens like these were acquired. It is one of those Meteor Crater history things I guess. I think these are probably ones gotten in the 1930s. The Observatory has been around for 80 odd years I think.

There is another exhibit that I found really neat. A thin section microscopic viewer is in the meteorite area. It has a large eyepiece with fabulous eye-relief. So here is a picture I got just holding the camera in front of the lens. There is a small arm the projects from the side of the barrel. You can rotate the polarizing filter with it. The meteorite is visible in plain and cross polarization. You can only see the area they have it put on. But, what a nice barred chondrule they have chosen.

We finished down in the planet and galaxy area where Einstein is still sitting. I took a picture of my wife

with him the last time. Here he is talking to our granddaughter this trip.

Be sure to check the dates and times for your visit the Observatory is not open everyday and the time it opens is different also. But, it is one of those not to be missed locations in Los Angeles. It is really worth a visit every few years since they keep it very fresh with new exhibits. Until next month, bye.

Meteorite Times Magazine Sutter’s Mill #12 Meteorite by Robert Verish

An Article In Meteorite-Times Magazine by Robert Verish

Sutter's Mill #12 Meteorite The twelth find recorded by NASA from the April 22nd 2012 meteorite fall of a rare carbonaceous chondrite in El Dorado County California.

Much has been written about the Sutter's Mill meteorite that fell on April 22nd 2012 in the Lotus/Coloma area of northern California. And in the future, much more will be written about this meteorite. Much more will HAVE to be written, because this is a significant meteorite and the Sutter's Mill story has just begun. Even as I write this article, the very name "Sutter's Mill" has just been formally-approved for this meteorite. And although the name "Sutter's Mill" now appears in the Meteoritical Bulletin Database, and it is clearly a rare carbonaceous chondrite, its exact classification has yet to be announced. Clearly it is too soon to write "The Whole Story" about the Sutter's Mill Meteorite. And a recap of its recovery is too recent and too well documented to offer any new or pertinent information. But I could write about my personal experiences while searching in the Sutter's Mill strewn-field. I could narrow

my focus and just write about how one of the stones from this fall came to be found. I can write with some firsthand knowledge about the recovery of this stone, because it happened right in front of me. Of course, I'm talking about the 17gram stone that my wife, Moni Waiblinger, found while volunteering on a search with NASA: Sutter's Mill #12 At first, Moni wasn't too keen on the idea of joining a group search where, if she made a find, it would have to be given to the property owner. But I explained to Moni that the property owners (Merv and Eugenia de Haas) had made it clear that they were only going to let NASA volunteers onto their property, and if anything was found, it was going to be donated to NASA researchers. Besides, we had arrived too late (at the end of the first week) and the local property owners had already come to the end of their patiance with all of the "meteor hunters", and getting permission to hunt private property had become not only very difficult, but contentious. So, with our options dwindling, we decided to volunteer our services to the recovery effort spear-headed by Peter Jenniskens and Bev Girden (NASA-Ames) and the small group of volunteers that they mustered. We arrived at the assigned meeting spot (the parking lot of the Museum in Sutter's Mill State Historical Park)early on Sunday morning, now one-full-week after the fall of this meteorite. After the team briefing by Peter and Bev, we caravaned to the "de Haas Farm" in Lotus. Well, here is the rest of the story by the finder, Moni Waiblinger, in her own words: Bob and I decided to join Peter and Bev.... and their group of volunteers to search for the meteorite at a farm property 2 miles south of Lotus. At arrival, the owner's brother and his wife (Al and Eugena de Haas) greeted us and told us we were allowed to hunt anywhere on their property. I mentioned we better start at a place without a lot of grass (and other vegetation) and Al de Haas replied that his brother's horse corral would be the place to start. Before we started walking down the hill to where the horse corral was located, I took several group photos of every one present. Later, I would think how funny it was that the one person not in the pictures (the one taking the pictures) would eventually be the "finder". We all started walking down the hill to the corral. Three horses were inside the fence with one of them was quite protective of the other two. He intimidated a couple of us by running around and the owner cautioned us, but he also mentioned that the horse is "alright, just be alert around him". The owner undid the chain around the posts and Peter entered the corral first and greeted the horse, well, the horse really greeted him first. We all proceeded inside the corral and it was decided that we would all form a line and move (in unison) across the pasture. We, first, lined-up against one side of the fence and then slowly walked to the opposite side searching for any fallen rocks. We all turned and went in another direction. We did this twice, but no finds were made. Couple of us continued to walk around the corral and kept searching randomly, while others were standing in a group discussing our next move. Few rocks or pebbles were in the area. I searched under the bushes and trees and joined with another volunteer named John, and we both continued our "random" walk. We were discussing how lucky one has to be to find a meteorite, any meteorite, even if it is in a middle of strewn-field with many others.

We felt we would have to have luck on our side and and be in the proper state-of-mind with pure contentment. Within seconds of me saying this to John, I spotted a grey rock on the ground! Well, as Moni said to me, "The rest is all now history". Before I head-out the door again for a return trip, here are a few of my images of the recovery of Sutter's Mill number 12:

NASA search team leader, Peter Jenniskens, makes friends with the horses in the pasture before the search party enters the field. By this time, I had already informed Peter that this pasture and the surrounding search area was too far south to have any chance of finding a stone from the Sutter's Mill fall, and that Moni and I would only stay and search for an hour, and then would depart to return to Coloma. Only 55 minutes later I would regret making those comments, as that was all the time Moni needed to find her meteorite, Sutter's Mill 12 (17grams).

After searching the pasture for an hour, a find (SM12)is made! Image date: 2012 April 29 - Lotus, California

My wife, Monika Waiblinger, points down to the stone she has found (just a few minutes earlier) and looks up (still in shock) and in apparent disbelief, might be asking, "You're not kidding me, are you? Are you telling me that after only 2 days of hunting, I've already found a Sutter's Mill Meteorite?" (Image taken by an even more stunned husband.)

These "macro images" are a quick & dirty in-the-field method of taking close-ups by simply placing a convex lens in front of my digital camera's optics.

Meteorite Times Magazine IMCA Insights – June 2012 by IMCA TEAM

The meteorite de Monferre (France) By Jean-Michel Masson Translated by Anne Black

Late in the evening probably around 10pm, during the summer of 1923, the inhabitants of the village of Treville in southwest France between Toulouse and Carcassonne observed a large fireball crossing the sky. The bolide was lying from south to north and passed just east of the village. A loud whistle pierced the night as the bolide illuminated the sky. At the farm “Le Graulet�, Leon de Bataille then 16 years-old, was closing the windows when he heard that loud whistling and saw the fireball fall right behind a small hill only 400 meters from the farm. During the following few days Leon de Bataille and some friends searched for the object fallen from the sky but without success. About the same time just a little north of Treville, a farmer found that a few tree stumps in the middle of his vineyards had been burned. He figured it was simply the result of lightning but the event stayed in his memory. Notes: 1) The burned tree stumps might be due to imagination. 2) All the witnesses and the documentation indicate the fall of one mass only with no explosion or fragmentation reported by anyone. Discovery! In 1966 after a regrouping of lands, Georges Krivobokow received a new parcel of land as a lease and his brother Michel went to work digging out tree stumps with his plow and then a stump bent the blade of the plow. He took it to the local blacksmith who straightened it and went back to work. Again a tree stump bent the blade; again he went to the blacksmith and again he went back to work, but when the blade was bent for the third time he decided to go work on a different field. All was going well for a while but then again something bent the blade. This time it had not been done by a tree stump but by a large stone. Since that stone was right in the middle of the field and very much in the way he asked his brother Georges to help him get it out. Neither one of them had ever since a stone like this one; it was rust-colored and covered with some kind of crust. They rolled that stone all the way to the southern edge of the field and since the village had just dug out a ditch along there, they just left it there. But Georges remembered the old story

told by Leon de Bataille and immediately wondered if that was the result of the fireball that had illuminated the sky of Treville some 43 years earlier. Note: In 1966 Leon de Bataille was the mayor of the village of Treville, in a privileged position to witness those facts. GPS: 430 23’ 22 N, 10 57’ 44 E.

Michel then went to the owner of the field, Madame Gil, to tell her about the big stone that was much in the way on the edge of the field. Madame Gil refused to have it moved and Michel didn’t want to do it either so the stone stayed there for four years. But Georges was still intrigued and decided to get it out of there. He placed a cart in the ditch right below the stone and with the help of his brother they rolled the stone onto the cart and took it to the farm “La Gravette” where they were living at the time.

Georges Krivobokow and the meteorite, circa 1972. Photo courtesy of Alain Carion. In 1971, geologists from the CEA (Atomic Agency) were prospecting in the area as part of a campaign to find sources of uranium; they happened to pass by the farm “La Gravette” and noticed the stone sitting by a barn. They immediately identified it as a meteorite, they broke a piece that they sent to the British Museum in London for analysis and the Museum confirmed that it was indeed a meteorite, an ordinary chondrite H5. Georges’s dream was confirmed, it really was a meteorite; the geologists allowed Georges to keep it at the farm but then he moved it inside on a base. Georges was fascinated by that stone, he built himself a nice library with many scientific books and it became a passion. For years after this, Georges welcomed people from all over the area and whole school buses, happy to show them the meteorite and talk about the discovery. NASA contacted him wanting to acquire it. Collectors made generous propositions but Georges preferred to keep his treasure fallen from the sky wanting only to share it with everyone, big and small. And scientists and enthusiastic amateurs from all over the world, Americans, Europeans, Japanese,…..kept on coming to the farm “La Gravette” to admire his meteorite. Georges never married or had children; the meteorite was his unique passion and he found great joy in telling its story.

Georges Krivobokow and the meteorite, circa 1972. Photo published by “L’Eclat MidiPyrenees” (defunct) In the 1980s, the project of mining for uranium in the area seemed to be about to become a reality and then Treville would be surrounded by quarries. The mayor alerted the press and the television stations to tell them about all those grand projects; between the uranium and the meteorite, Treville and its inhabitants were suddenly in the spotlight. But the years went on peacefully, Michel and Georges moved to another farm, “Plaisance”. Then, before moving to a retirement home, Georges offered his meteorite to his nephew also named Georges. And that is when trouble started…………. To better understand that trouble, it is important to make a few points perfectly clear: At the time of the discovery, the field belonged to Madame Gil then to her daughter who married a Monsieur Gras; that couple was perfectly happy to see Georges (the uncle) enjoy his meteorite, they did not want it and they never wanted to cause any problems to anyone. Many years later their son Claude (Gras) decide that he wanted to sue the Krivobokows to get the meteorite back but his mother was firmly opposed to the idea. When his mother died, Claude Gras demanded that his father sue the Krivobokows to get the meteorite back but the father refused to go against the wishes of his deceased wife. Claude Gras had to wait until the death of his own father to start any legal proceedings. He then demanded that the inhabitants of the village sign documents stating that they had seen the meteorite in the farm “La Gravette”; he hired a private detective to carry his own investigation and a geologist to get GPS readings of the area then he gathered a mass of documents. It included a letter from the Museum of Natural History in Paris wanting to acquire it and forbidding its exportation. The case between Claude Gras and Georges Krivobokow (the nephew) was heard in court several times after 2000, first in Carcassonne then Montpellier and finally in Paris. Claude Gras lost every single time, all the way to the highest Court of Appeals because of the “Loi du Trentenaire” that only gave him 30 years to make a claim; the meteorite was discovered in 1966, therefore it had become the official property of the discoverer, Michel Krivobokow, in 1996.

Michel Krivobokow and the author. Photo by Jean-Luc Billard During my investigation, I learned that the meteorite has disappeared: not long before his death in 1999, Georges (the uncle) apparently went back to his nephew, retrieved the meteorite and hid it so well that to this day no one knows where it is. I would like to thank the inhabitants of Treville who helped me reconstruct the history of this meteorite, Jean-Luc Billard for his active participation in this research and William Sanchez for his advices at the beginning of the research.

Meteorite Times Magazine Angrites by John Kashuba Angrites are achondrites consisting largely of augite. Augite is a pyroxene containing calcium and, in this case, some titanium and aluminum. Olivine and plagioclase make up the remaining bulk. Angrites are the oldest known igneous rocks and probably came from a large parent body.

Meteorite Times Magazine Interesting Indochinite Tektites by Phil Morgan by Editor Stretched Teardrop This Indochinite teardrop weighs 15.7g and measures 25 x 50 mm. The bottom 1/3 on one side broke away and almost slid off, stretching the still-soft interior. Some might not consider this a true “stretch� tektite since there is only relatively minor angular distortion but this is far from a simple skin split. I have had a couple of these extreme linear stretches and usually see one side sliding while the other side remains relatively intact.

Bubble Indochinite This interesting broken bubble tektite weighs 15.5g.
