The Catalog of Meteorites lists the fall date of the Dresden (Ontario)
Canada H6 fall as occurring on June 11, 1939.
Yet the following give a date of July 11, 1939 with a recovery date of
July 12, 1939.
Canadian Meteorites by Richard White (1984), as published by The
Provincial Museum of Alberta, pages 19 and 20.
Colgrove, W.G., 1939, "The Dresden Meteorite." JRASC, 33, 301-33.
Globe & Mail, July 12, 1939.
The Chatham News, July 12, 1939.
So which date is reliable? If the Meteorite Catalog is incorrect, will
it be corrected in a future edition?
