Hello Ginger and All,

Jerry is concerned about the accuracy of the details in his paintings even
if there was no witness. I remember discussing a painting he did about the
fall of the Sikhote-Alin meteorite, and he said he watched old World War 2
movies showing shells exploding in the frozen, snow-covered ground. This
gave Jerry the insight into what might look like when a high-speed iron
chunk impacts the ground at around the time of year as the fall of the S-A

For those interested in the art of Jerry Armstrong may be interested in an
article I wrote about him in the November 1998 issue of Meteorite! magazine.
