Pieces of Canadian Meteorite Found

I’ve been fascinated by the footage of the meteorite that fell over Canada last week.

I’m not normally into astronomy, but for some reason the shot from the cop’s dashboard camera of the sky lighting up and the streak that followed has really captured my attention.

A planetary scientist and a graduate student have found some fragments of the meteorite.

An American is offering a $10,000 reward for pieces of the meteorite weighing one killogram or more.

I’m guessing they’ll maintain them for research and forego the cash.
