Wow, that is amazing. I used to be in to metal detecting, and once I found a large lump of rock that gave me a signal, and was attracted to a magnet.
It was about six inches long, by about 2 or 3 inches wide, and the same in depth. But from what I found out, the place where I had found the rock was
where gravel used to be dumped many years before. So I think it was piece of iron ore in some rock or something like that. It had a mark down one side
that suggested to me it was attached to another rock at one time, but had subsequently become detached. Anyway, finding a meteorite out in the woods
or in a field or even in your backyard is not that common at all.
Many of those that are found by meteorite hunters are found in known debris fields, and although these special space rocks are littered around the
globe, I would think that many of them would be buried by now. But, in places that do not get a lot of rain I suspect they can be found more
abundantly, unless these areas have been combed in the past.
I think the greatest aspect of this story is that he was using the rock to press ham. Well, and that it is worth 5 million dollars. It is just a great
story, and I like to see stories like this, especially considering all of the doom and gloom threads and stories we get here on ATS. I just wish the
MSM would focus more on good stories instead of negative stories, and this is an example of a good story.
