Hi all,

Now for something a little bit different...............

See link below for some photos of a cast of the impact pit made by the
famous Middlesbrough meteorite on 14th March 1881.

I know lots of you now have a cast of the Middlesbrough meteorite so i
thought you may be interested in seeing a cast of the Middlesbrough
impact pit that i acquired back in 2011 but have just uncovered in my
garage today Not yet mounted it properly in a display case but i plan
on making a replica wooden crate which is how it was originally housed
when the pit was originally dug up.

The meteorite is housed at the Yorkshire Museum in York and more info
on the historic meteorite fall can be seen here:


Enjoy :-)
