How much stuff does it take to find a meteorite?

While I was looking for photos to put up on Michael Blood's new Meteorite Friends page I came across some photos that I had not seen in a while.  When I saw the picture below, I wondered, "How much stuff and interesting things have we all seen and found while looking for meteorites?"

If you have an interesting picture that was taken during a successful meteorite hunt and would like to share them with all of us as the Meteorite of the Month, please contact Paul and Jim at

My treasures after a few days hunting on some of California's dry lakes.
Jim Tobin's pile was more impressive.


On the last day of hunting I made my first find.  El Mirage Dry Lake 001, H5 1.5 grams
