Find a Meteorite!

Meteorites

If meteorites have landed in your backyard, you may be able to find them. Glue or tape a strong magnet to the end of a broom handle. Meteorites contain a lot of iron, so your magnet will stick to them. Some ordinary Earth rocks contain a lot of iron, too, so they will stick also. You can tell which are meteorites by looking for the fusion crust, a thin, glassy coating that formed when the meteorite superheated during its fall through Earth's atmosphere.
