>in 40 years so they can tell where it landed.
>Alan Hildebrand, a planetary scientist at the University of
>Calgary, says the meteor was an asteroidal fragment that
>weighed five to 10 tonnes, about 1.5 meters in diameter.
>Hildebrand says it was travelling at roughly 20 kilometres
>per second and this was probably the biggest rock to fall on
>Alberta since 1960.''
>The flaming rock was seen streaking north across the
>Alberta sky near the British Columbia boundary on October
>14th at around 2:20 a.m.
>It exploded over the northern part of Banff National Park
>with a deafening boom that could be heard 150 kilometers
>Eyewitnesses reported seeing hundreds of pieces of the
>rock falling to the ground, however, freshly fallen snow
>may delay the hunt for particles until next spring.
