Canyon Diablo Meteorite

This Canyon Diablo Meteorite was displayed outside the BUHL Planetarium.
This iron nickel meteorite is the fifth large piece of meteorite that was recovered from the Barrier Meter Crater near Winslew Arizona. The original meteorite or or parent body weighing several million tons
Both of them were so fascinated by this piece of meteorite.  This reminds me of the movies Armageddon and Deep Impact.  Watching those movies makes you think, what if...???


  1. Sam is so fascinated with meteor and meteorites, so I showed this to him and all he could say is Wow! :) Yes, what if ...

  2. The meteorite does remind me of Armageddon movie. It would be nice to see this first hand.


It's always a pleasure to read what you have to say! Thank you!
