Picture of the Week #50
Part of the Peekskill Meteorite. American Museum of Natural History, Arthur Ross Hall of Meteorites, August 2006.
This is a fragment of one of the more famous meteorites to fall to earth. It is well-known for two reasons - first, it was caught on video (since it conveniently entered our atmosphere during high school football games!) and second, because it hit a woman's car.
