REDUCED For Sale: Two Sikhote-Alin metoeorites. Selling for $30.00 each, or $50.00 for both. Price includes delivery. The Sikhote-Alin metoeroites were seen to fall on February 12, 1947 at 10:38 AM (UT), in the Sikhote-Alin mountains of Russia, about 270 miles NE of Vladivolstok. The many people who saw and heard the faull (some up to 200 miles away) reported a smoke trail 20 miles long with the meteorites coming in at about 31 degrees from about 15 degrees East of North. Scientists believe it eneterd the atmosphere at about 31,000 miles per hour and began to break up almost immediately, but the main mass fragmented in a violent explosion at the relatively low altitude of about 3.5 miles. The fragments travelled together and landed in an elliptical area of about half a square mile, creating a number of inpact craters up to 85 feet across. These two fragments weigh a total of 81 grams and are 1.5 inches and 1.75 incles long. They are made up primarily of iron. As you can see by the picture these are very nice items. The picture doesn't do them justice.

Thanks for looking,
