Hi everyones.
We build this database compressive and hope,useful..

(New Add don't means new finds)
Collect about 26.000 meteorits in 127 Countries
contain brief description each ones,there are:
1-Name
2- Type(stone,iron ect)
2- Coordinates:
3- Where They Find or Fall:
4- Date:When Recovered
5- Recovered Weight:
6- Group
7- Petrologic type: example:Hexahedrite -Pallasite, Ataxite,ect)
8- Shock stage
9- Weathering grade

We planning to update as soon possible if meteorit fell or find ANYWHERE on earth
Data from:127 Countries Around the World
Note:
----1-Don't including those that no show coords 'til confirmate and.....
----2-No duplicate .with others GE members placemarks.
Meteorite Types
Iron primarily iron and nickel;
similar to type M asteroids

Stony Iron mixtures of iron and stony material like type S asteroids
Chondrite by far the largest number of meteorites fall into this class;
similar in composition to the mantles and crusts of the terrestrial planets
Carbonaceous Chondrite very similar in composition to the Sun less volatiles;
similar to type C asteroids
Achondrite similar to terrestrial basalts;
the meteorites believed to have originated on the Moon and Mars are achondrites .
See Also Valery's Network Link
We Get this from most complete database about this topic Many Thank from this web siteNatural History Museum this data only intent to research and information.
Also Many Thanks to Nomenclature Committee of the Meteoritical Society
Enjoy.!!

WAUU - a lot of work there! Very cool.:)

A question: Is there a way to sort the locations so that playing the tour will jump to the closest location rather than spinning the globe? I would expect the image loading to be completed quicker between each jump as more cached image information potentially will be available when the focus is only moved a little??

Re: Meteorites Impact Database (+26.000 hits) On Earth Hill 1/19/06 3:50 PM
That's a great idea and a great post Majoska. Here's a bit of trivia which concerns a rather amazing coincidence about two meteorites which fell in Wethersfield, CT, USA. In April 8, 1971, the meteorite in your database fell on a house and crashed through the roof. 11 1/2 years later, November 8, 1982, a meteorite crashed through the roof of another house in Wethersfield CT. After passing through the roof and into the living room, it bounced into the dining room, and landed under a table.

The one which fell in Sylacauga, Alabama, is the only known case of a meteorite hitting a person in the US. Ann Hodges of Sylacauga was slightly injured when the meteorite crashed through the roof of her home and hit her in the hip, bruising her.
The story.

Hello valery is as he was explaining if you realized that there were some of these fallen down objects of the "sky" that the coords were not showing that are known that they have fallen down others as they are in case of those who are in the Antarctic
In one word: to avoid the rebundance and only 4 of what it shows in this database since it was already marked by other members of alone GE I said again 4 .. out of 36.000

Acfer 366 26° 36.56' N 03° 56.14' E

Acfer region, Africa

Find: November 2002

Carbonacous Chondrite (CH3)

History: A single stone weighing 1456 g was found in the Acfer region of Africa by Filiberto Ercolani (deceased 2004). Petrography: (V. Moggi-Cecchi and A. Salvadori, MSP; G. Pratesi, Firenze) The outer surface displays a small portion of fusion crust. A fresh, cut surface reveals a chondritic texture with several visible metal grains and dark colored matrix. Chondrules range from 30-300 &#956;m with a mean apparent diameter of 91 &#956;m. Cryptocrystalline chondrules predominate (58%) although GO, GOP (22%) and PO (17%) chondrules are also observed. BO chondrules are rare (3%). Most of the larger chondrules are GO/GOP type. Fragments (both deriving from chondrules and not) comprise the majority of the sample (~70% of the total volume), with minor chondrules (15-20% vol.) and non-silicate phases (20-25% vol.). Non-silicate phases are mainly Fe-Ni metal (predominantly kamacite) with some sulfides also occurring. The metal and sulfides grains range from 10-100 &#956;m, are homogenously distributed and can be rounded or irregular in shape. Metal also occurs as droplets within chondrules. Geochemistry: EMP analyses of chondrule olivine indicate a fairly homogeneous composition (Fa0-3, mean Fa1) although olivine in chondrule fragments has a more variable composition (Fa1-20, mean Fa5). Low-Ca pyroxene in chondrules and in fragments is relatively homogenous, Fs0-7Wo1-5. High-Ca pyroxene is rare, occurring only in PO chondrules, Fs23.8Wo31.9.

Re: Meteorites Impact Database (+26.000 hits) On Earth Cintos 2/17/06 1:03 PM
Greetings:

I have been using Google Earth for a few weeks, as a GIS tool to enable the distribution of geologic landforms I find particualrrly interesting. As a newcomer, I want to be respectful of the etiquette here.

The topic "Impact Database" is most relevant to my subject matter, but with a nuance. I have been identifying and documenting a new class of impact craters and resulting ejecta. As an introduction, I am attaching a KMZ file that shows the geomorphology of the Danish City of Copenhagen was assembled from accreted ejecta emplacements.

The KML file is available initially from our web site via <ftp://perigeezero.org/ge/kmz/Copenhagen.kmz> I have no problem integrating that fle with the general pool of KMZ, but I need some guidance from the communitty as to whether that is considered appropriate.

A toutorial walk-though of this KMZ data is available at <http://perigeezero.org/pz/Proof_sets/Proof_Sets/Denmark/index.html>

Best wishes,
michael

Re: Meteorites Impact Database (+26.000 hits) On Earth Macnannan 3/21/06 11:11 AM
I discovered a placemark on Google Earth for the Willamette Meteorite when 'flying over' my house. The location given is actually several miles off from where it was found. Earlier experts could afford to be approximate in their coordinates, but GE now exposes their sloppiness.

Actual Coordinates are about 45 21.42 and 122 40.36. Your given coordinates are 45 22 N and 122 35 W. I drove by the location you have, which is now a front yard in a government low-cost housing project, and measured the by-road distance - 6.5 miles to the actual site. Less of course as the bird flies.

From your placemark for the Willamette Meteorite, with 'Roads' selected, follow Highway 205 from your bookmark location irregularly west. Find SW Tualatin Loop south of this highway. It takes off from and returns to SW Johnson Road. To the North of Johnson Road, a short distance east of the east end of SW Tualatin Loop, is a visible road into private property, which is where the Willamette Meteor was found. There used to be a sign noting the location, which is gone now, so I'm doing this from memory, and have not actually visited the site itself. The location is on a ridgetop. The river to the south is the Tualatin, just upstream from its confluence with the much larger Willamette.

An interesting fact about this meteor is that it actually fell to Earth hundreds of miles away, perhaps as far as Canada. Its original resting place will never be known, as the continental glaciers have long since erased any evidence of its original location. It is possible that it fell on glacial ice! Here is how it happened:

During the last Ice Age, a lobe of the Cordilleran Ice Sheet repeatedly blocked a fork of the Columbia River, and backed up the entire flow of the river each time for around 60 years, until the glacier floated and quickly (in a very few days) released the whole lake. In one of these events, an iceberg which carried the Willamette Meteorite floated up the Willamette Valley and into the Tualatin Valley.

The flood was impounded behind narrow spots along its path to the ocean, and due to the resulting hydraulic damming, the Willamette and Tualatin Valleys filled to an elevation of about 400 feet. While the water drained out, icebergs were stranded throughout these valleys, usually on ridges, and they left behind as evidence glacial erratics. Some were granite or other exotic rocks not existing locally, and one iceberg held the Willamette Meteorite. There is no impact crater where the Willamette Meteorite was found, and it was laying on top the flat surface. Elevation is about 165 ft. (50 m.).

Whether the Meteorite had fallen near the ice dam or further afield will never be known. The Ice Sheet could have carried it some distance, but that would have likely resulted in erosion of it which is not obvious.

A quick tour explaining the flood is available at http://www.glaciallakemissoula.org/virtualtour/index.html . A Google Search will find you many articles on the phenomena of the Missoula (aka Bretz) (aka Spokane) Floods.

Hello Macnannan and welcome to this
Sorry by delay my reply
I have read the whole text that you placed in this thread .. indeed it is very explanatory it me who could only amazed of of affiliation of those who entrust themselves or do the trbajo of putting the information re-is sorry are small that are wrong .. in fact if one reads in the profile of every meteorite it will happen all the of that he says fell or found he sees edges when someones finds an stone as this one that is not a professional
He thought that there where he found it is where it fell down not that far of the truth is times falls down in a place many happen

Newer information from a Wikipedia page:
Quote:

99942 Apophis (previously known by its provisional designation 2004 MN4) is a near-Earth asteroid that caused a brief period of concern in December 2004 because initial observations indicated a relatively large probability that it would strike the Earth in 2029. However, additional observations provided improved predictions that eliminated the possibility of an impact on Earth or the Moon in 2029. However there remained a possibility that during the 2029 close encounter with Earth, Apophis would pass through a "gravitational keyhole", a precise region in space no more than about 400 meters across, that would set up a future impact on April 13, 2036. This possibility kept the asteroid at Level 1 on the Torino impact hazard scale through August 2006.

Additional observations of the trajectory of Apophis revealed the "keyhole" would likely be missed and on August 5, 2006, Apophis was lowered to a Level 0 Torino impact hazard scale. As of August 5, 2006 the impact probability for April 13, 2036 is estimated at 1 in 43,000. Two additional impact dates, one in 2037 and the other in 2054, have been identified, however the impact probability for those is 1 in 11.8 million and 1 in 370 million respectively.

Moss meteorite Anonymous 3/9/07 5:43 AM

This meteorite fell on July 14th, 2006 at ~10:15 am in the Ostfold region of Norway. Pieces were scattered from the village of Rygge to the center of Moss in a ~6 kilometer line.

The fall was witnessed by thousands of people, who described it as brighter than the sun, and many said they saw at least five pieces falling. One piece landed in a garden after breaking the limb of a plumb tree off. Another piece landed on a metal plate near a man who was using an outdoor toilet. This was the first piece recovered. This also in incluiding lunar meteorit Dhofar 1404 feel in Oman)



A third piece imbedded itself in the roof of a building in Moss and was found only after more than two weeks when rain water leaking into the building forced a search for the leak. A fourth piece weighing ~800 grams was found by Morten Bilet and myself on 30 July. The last know piece was found after breaking a fence and details of that one are not being shared, even the total weight of that piece is not known.reference::NHM Catalogue MetBase Met.

METEORITES MORE VALUABLE THAN DIAMONDS Anonymous 3/11/07 12:17 PM
Meteorit :Kalahari 009 at 13.5 kg (30 lbs.). Found 1999
Meteorites, including lunar and martian meteorites, are easily available for purchase on the Internet. Samples (end cuts, slabs, chips, crumbs, dust) of the lunar meteorites sell on the Internet (e.g., e-Bay) for between about $800 and $40,000 per gram, depending upon rarity (perceived or real) and demand. By comparison, the price of 24-carat gold is about $20 per gram and gem-quality diamonds start at $1000-2000/gram.

Most rocks advertised as lunar meteorites are, in fact, meteorites from the Moon sold by reputable dealers. Some are not. Caveat emptor. So Diamonds $2.000 per gram
meteorits from mars or lunar $40.000 per gram

Hambleton meteorite Anonymous 3/14/07 7:53 AM
The discovery of a new meteorite in the U.K. is big news. But when the new find is a Pallasite, then you need to re-calibrate your Big News Detector!

To find a meteorite, even an ordinary chondrite is very rare, but to find one of the rarest types of meteorites (only 1 % of all falls are pallasites) then this is cause for excitement. The meteorite in question is the first of its kind to be discovered in the British Isles.Reference & image from:www.astronomyedinburgh.org/publications/journals/50/self1.shtm

Norton County, Kansas meteorite Anonymous 3/15/07 11:49 AM
NORTON COUNTY, Kansas - Witnessed Fall

--------------------------After a brilliant fireball and a tremendous noise, a huge shower of stones fell over a large area of Norton County, Kansas, and Furnas County, Nebraska. This meteorite, which fell on 18 February 1948, was named Norton County, and classified as an Achondrite, Ca-poor, Aubrite, fragmental breccia. Aubrites are quite rare and this is the largest known in historical times. The main mass weighing more than 1070 kg is the center of the meteorite display at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. Norton County is a very historical and scientifically valuable meteorite and almost impossible to obtain as nearly all of the material is in the University of New Mexico collection.

Annaheim meteorite Anonymous 3/21/07 12:57 PM
-----------------------------------Iron Meteorite Annaheim

This meteorite was found in 1916 about 10 km north of Annaheim, a settlement somewhat about 100 km east of Saskatoon.


-----------------------------------------

It was discovered by Mr. William Huiras who was mowing hay on his farm. It is believed to be related to a spectacular fireball observed some two years earlier. It is a crescent shaped medium octahedrite, with a mass of nearly 12 kg and showing very clearly the dimpling or 'thumb-printing' of the surface which is often found on iron meteorites.

The main mass is currently held in the Canadian National Meteorite Collection, Ottawa (Ref. R.A.A. Johnston & H.V. Ellsworth (1921): Trans. Roy. Soc. Canada., Sect. IV, p. 92.) (Photo courtesy Geological Survey of Canada) Reference: miac.uqac.ca/MIAC/iron.htm miac.uqac.ca/MIAC/iron.htm

The Hoba meteorite Anonymous 4/2/07 3:09 PM
---------------------------------------------------- The Hoba Meteorite

-------- The Hoba meteorite, also known as the Hoba West meteorite, is the heaviest meteorite in the world and the largest naturally-occurring mass of iron known to exist on the surface of the earth.

-------------------------------

------ The meteorite, named after the Hoba West Farm near Grootfontein, Namibia, where it was discovered in 1920, has not been moved since it landed over 80,000 years ago. The discovery of the Hoba meteorite was a chance find, as it left no crater or other sign of impact; evidently the Earth's atmosphere slowed down the 66-ton iron body enough so that it fell at terminal velocity. At this speed, the meteorite stayed basically intact and the low-energy impact with the surface caused little excavation. The meteorite is unusual in that it is flat on both major surfaces, possibly causing it to have skipped across the top of the atmosphere in the way a flat stone skips on water.
Re: The Hoba meteorite Hill 4/8/07 11:07 AM
It appears like you have placemarked the actual site, Majoska. There are 7 other placemarks around here, but you can actually make out the meteorite at the bottom of a small amphitheater at this one, just like in the image you provided.

Hello Majoska -

I see the "Dho" placemarks all over the place. I can now see this has to do with meteorites, but cannot find an explanation in this thread (or your links) for "dho." I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with Homer Simpson.

Please explain to all of us meteorite-ignorant people who click on your copious placemarks!

Diane
