Sitting in the Willamette Meteorite


From Retronaut: "The Willamette Meteorite... is an iron-nickel meteorite discovered in Oregon. It is the largest meteorite found in North America and the sixth largest in the world. There was no impact crater at the discovery site; researchers believe the meteorite landed in what is now Canada or Montana, and was transported as a glacial erratic to the Willamette Valley during the Missoula Floods at the end of the last Ice Age (~13,000 years ago)."

"The Meteorite weighs about 32,000 pounds (15,000 kg) and is over 91% iron and 7.62% nickel, with traces of cobalt and phosphorus."

The photograph up top was taken in 1911.
