Do you think you have found a meteorite?

| questions | September 29, 2011

Having a number of  meteorite websites guarantees that we get a constant barrage of emails from people who thing they’ve found a meteorite.  We can count on one hand the number of actual meteorites from all the inquiries we’ve had since we started our meteorite.com website in 1996.  The vast majority of people make their assumption without trying to learn anything about meteorites.

So if you’ve found a strange rock that you think might be a meteorite, your first step is to get some simple information about meteorites.  We have a good starter article on meteorite identification on our site to help you as well and the meteorite identification links below.
