Chelyabinsk meteorite


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Obviously the Chelyabinsk meteorite needs no introduction to Stargazers Lounge. However, you probably haven't heard of Alena Zabolotina who is a Chelyabinsk based photographer who back in September 2013 produced a set of close up images of the famed meteorite.

You can see them all at this link.


(Her other work is well worth checking out to!)

And if you haven't seen it yet:


Space Ranger.

Thanks for posting Space Ranger - cool :thumbsup:

Wow Paul - how did you get the sample?? That's something special to have!!!

I bought it from FLO:


Its really quite small compared to other meteorites they sell but thats because not a lot of it was found and there has to be enough to go round. It is a special meteorite because we all remember the day it happened.
