Munich Mineral Show 2009
by Maria Haas

Hello Fellow Members!

This year marks the 46th anniversary of the spectacular October 30th to November 1, 2009 Munich Mineral Show. It is my pleasure to share some pictures and observations on behalf of those who were able to attend.

It appears as though some members who faithfully attend every year did their best to fit the show into their schedule.

As we all would expect, the amount of NWA material available was much less than years past but the meteorite community’s camaraderie has not changed.

Best wishes and happy holidays to all of you!
