IMLAY CITY (UPI) - A search was to begin today for a meteorite which
may have fallen into a field about 1 1/2 miles from here in Lapeer County.
A Michigan State University meteorologist, Van Chamberlain, said he
would probe the area for a trace of the object which apparently made a
three-foot hole in the snowbound landscape, threw dirt in a 50 feet radius
and left signs of intense heat.
Residents of the area reported they saw a flash of light, believed to
be a meteorite, last Thursday.
Mark note: Meteorites A to Z does not show any meteorite fall for this
location and time. Report is somewhat convincing though.
