Mea culpa!

I typed way too fast when I should have thought a bit more slowly. I meant
"Niger" and not "Nigerian/Nigeria". I changed the post below. Thank you to
the person who pointed that out to me.

To the meteorite community at large:

The classification for the Niger impact melt is nearing completion and at
this point, there is not enough information to give it a proper name
associated with its location. Without some FAST intervention, this meteorite
will receive an NWA number. Nothing wrong per se with an NWA number, but in
the words of the classifying scientist, "This is a great shame for something
so special." The only find info available is that it was found just outside
Arlit, Niger. Many people searched and found this material, so better
coordinates MUST be available. I realize this is the nature of the business,
BUT surely we can get information on a find with a large total known weight

Thank you all!
