12 years ago i worked on the freeways in California for caltrans, we were fixing a guard-rail at 4 in the morning. we saw a meteorite come down and explode above the field right next to us. got off work at 7:30 and went over there and detected for an hour and found one of the pieces. Thanks for lookin!

Cool, congrats love meteorites.

Remember when your cup holder sat next to you in a mini skirt and tank top?

So let me understand this. You and your co workers were out working and a meteorite came crashing down to earth, right by where you were working? I would have shit myself and ran for cover!
That part of the story is just as cool as finding the chunk of meteor.  Great post Leo.

Yep, it exploded into a bunch of pieces and I saw about where one hit in a freshly plowed field on the other side of the fence. A little puff of dirt flew up next to a concrete sisturn in the field.
