In this morning's mail, I received an unusual letter from a Mrs. Cheung in
Alamo, California. The letter says they are contacting me (the recipient
of the letter) for a friend who wants some help selling some meteorites in
her possession. It goes on to say that some of the stones have already
been identified as meteorites by the Bishop Museum in Honolulu.
They list five different samples that have been identified by the museum
and they list densities for the specimens but no weights.
Here is the interesting information in the letter.
" In addition to the samples she has given us some photographs of the
meteorites. During a conversation with her, one of the meteorites was
identified as coming from the planet Jupiter."
Imagine that, a meteorite from Jupiter!
If anyone wants to pursue this, let me know and I'll give you the contact
