Dear List,

For me, the closest is also Paragould. Even closer is a spectacular
meteorwrong that is on display in the center of the town square in
Pocahontas, Arkansas, accompanied by a plaque describing it as a meteorite.
It probably weighs about 1000 kilos, and my guess is that it is made out of
a reddish chert. The biggest fireball that I have ever seen was the July 07
monster that was seen by many people across several southern states. It's
too bad that nobody ever found pieces of that thing.
