Thank you Michael, those are good sites.
I would add this one:
http://meteorites.wustl.edu/more_info_nonlunar.htm particularly all
the pages with hundreds of pictures of meteorwrongs.
And to Jan Marius, I would recommend you contact Morten Bilet, a fellow
Norwegian. As far as I remember there is no such a thing as sedimentary
meteorites, and all those pictures look like very terrestrial rocks.

Michael in so. Cal.
