Thomas had to "fight" against the farmers, so that those didn´t plow up from top to bottom their olive plantations after heavy rain falls! The only question was still: where were hidden the meteorites? Here you can see the finding situation of the 8,41g individual LM-Met06.
At last delight after three days of frustration!
Jippi - Jippi - Jee - that´s no olive, but a nice 4,62g individual (LM-Met07).
All of a sudden - among the millions of ordinary stones one meteorite fragment! Where does it come from? (LM-Met08)
Lesser than that, it can not go more! So quite alone, a nice 2,45g fragment (LM-Met09)
Oh well!!! The first meteorite, which is overleaping the 10g mark... and then at that an oriented specimen with 29,44g (LM-Met10).
After all the Lord is playing dice from time to time! From where else this little cube is coming?
With 45°C beyound the sun sometimes the mood is gone. Then the search underneath an olive tree can be a preety welcome work. Above all, if a meteorite is located untderneath the tree, like in this case LM-Met11.
Thomas also does in another way! Jipi - Jipi - Jee!!! That are 100g for sure! :-)
Oh - yes. Who was demolishing this precious oriented meteorite! Noooooo!!! ;-(
Thomas needed around two hours for the recovery of ca. 90g of meteorite material, which was splitting into numerous fragments and encased in rinsed sand (like concrete) after a heavy thunderstorm.
Playing hide-and-seek doesn´t help you at all. Thomas find you all - promised! Anyway he saw this 12,1g specimen (LM-Met13).
Again cracked meteorites at the finding situation of LM-Met14 (ca. 25g).
The suffering begins, if you touch the hot stones. Ow!!! However what will we do for meteorites!
It is quite impressive , if you find still one (concerning to thise meteorite) big fragmen about 2 m away.
