Looks like three teams are looking for a meteorite from the June 3 incident talked about here. Here's the June 3rd local TV report from Komo


Current story from Seattle P.I.

"Anytime you have a sonic boom like that, the chance of having surviving meteorites is pretty high," says UW astronomer Brownlee, who estimates the June 3 meteor was "bigger than a cow."

The UW represents one of three teams currently tracking the June 3 fall. Scientists there have used seismographs to place the meteor explosion about six miles northeast of Snohomish.


I would like to take a look myself - anyone have any ideas how I can find where they are looking? Besides your eyes is there any other way to find a meteorite? Like using a metal detector or something else? This place is less than an hour from my location & I could use the exercise if nothing else.

Iron meteorites (fairly rare, if I recall) can be found by metal detectors, yes. But stony meteorites can't be detected that way.

A good idea is to look at meteorites online and educate yourself about what they look like. It's easiest if you go out with an experienced person.

Check your local astronomy club/university.

I'm in Seattle & the sonic boom got me out of bed as well.

Wow, someone on ATS from the little town of Snohomish. I was looking at houses with land out there about three years ago and I ate in some restaurant right in town. Nice little quiet town.

I have a friend in Lake Stevens nearby, so I'm going to do some exploring there when I get some time.
