Hi all,

Well after numerous trips to Utah looking for meteorites,I finally
found one. It was not until I cleaned up the suspected meteorites that
I noticed one that looked better than the others. I was still not sure
until I placed a small window on the meteorite. While I was sanding a
small window, I was really doubtful it was a meteorite due to the dark
red mud /water coming off the suspected meteorite. The only good sign I
had, it would attract to a magnet slightly and the color looked liked a
weathered meteorite. The polished window shows metal flakes and small
weathered chondrules. Well it is a start,too bad it is only 4 grams.
This does give me a reason to go back now and look for more! I should
have picture up on my web page of the Utah meteorite and some meteorite
finds made this summer by the first of the week. It looks like Utah
only has 19 known meteorites in the bulletin and maybe 20 now!
