Please have a look at:
As every year, Caillou Noir is proud to propose to the meteorite community
its new international meteorite contest.
The purpose of the contest is to localize the smallest oriented meteorite
present in worldwide collections.
The weight of the meteorite will be taken into account to determine the
world wide smallest oriented meteorite. Weights in grammes, centigrams,
milligrams if necessary.
Only oriented meteorites will be taken into account for the contest. Flight
oriented shape is the first criteria. Only Drop shape, cone, shield, will be
admitted. Rims or flow lines are welcome.
The contest is open from July 6 till July 24, 24 h UTC.
To apply one should just send an email with his coordinates to fred_at_caillou-noir.com
and to send a photo of the smallest oriented meteorite of her/his
collection. Valid photos will show clearly She/he will also give all details
about her/his meteorite, such as dimension, type, classification, where and
when found. Dimensions, in millimeters, classification according Met Bull
The winner will receive as prize a shield oriented meteorite from Caillou
Noir Collection from the same fall/find as the meteorite shown at a.m. webpage.
If two different meteorites happen to have the same weight and to be the 2
smallest world wide present in collection meteorites, the winner will be the
first to find from which find/fall the meteorite shown at a.m. page comes.
Send your replies!!!
