Mark the photographer finds a meteorite and gets his picture taken by me, the meteorite hunter. That would explain the blurry picture.. Sorry Mark!

Marks meteorite is a bit pyramidal shaped and oriented. It has flow lines and a roll over lip.

Too funny! This picture needs explaining. We pull up to a property that we wanted to hunt, I look through the window as I knock on the door and I see a man and a woman in the house. They both come to the door. As the man, whom I assumed was the husband or home owner, steps out, I looked at him and my brain went into a knot. This guy looks exactly like Darryl Pitt! Alas, It is Darryl! He had arrived before us, and if you know Darryl you know how nice and polite and cordial he is. It's no surprise he had been invited into the home. We had a great laugh and hunted together for a while. Unfortunately, no meteorites were found on the property.
