I'm very curious as to how this gentleman at the Mineral Museum in Maine determined that the Maine meteorite is approximately 5 inches in diameter, and "about the size of a softball."

Did he have a Super Telescope he was viewing it through at the time, or how did he determine through weather or TV station, or parking lot cameras, or cell phone video with some math equation that it was the size of a softball? I honestly hope they find a piece that large, and that they find it by this summer or fall before the first big snow in the area.
