This afternoon, I talked to the gentleman who found the Aarhus meteorite.
Back in 1951, on October 2. at 18:10 the Aarhus meteorite fell.
Only two stones were ever found.
One fell aprox 3 meters behind this guy !!!
Among many other things he told me that the stone was "hand warm" when
he picked it up.... a few seconds after it fell.
To me this first hand....literally speaking ... account ends the
discussion about warm meteorites.
Just thought I would let you know.
Even though it has been a long time, I will try to find more
stones....what do you think of that ?
