It supposedly landed on military grounds.
Anymore information on this meteorite find?
I want to join the hunt!!! I'm an amateur meteorite hunter in Las Vegas and
have all the equipment needed to recover and map this find. It is very
important to map the strewnfield for science and to determine where to find more
stones from this fall. I can be there within one day. Please contact me!!!
on BLM land outside of Dugway. Definite meteor parts and they pass the magnet
test. More searching going on and I'm heading back out when the weather clears
My mom saw it in Alliance, NE!!
I was leaving work that night and saw the meteor from Rifle Colorado. It was
amazing. I forgot to search for stories about it until tonight at work where I
I was out camping in Dugway that night and it was truly amazing
I saw it from between my shutters, it was bright enough to light up the front
room (Holladay, Utah)
i live in terra utah and that is about 8 miles out of dugway i was sitting by my
fire place inside my trailer at 12:07am i was talking to my girlfriend and i
looked out the window behind her and i saw the flash but their was something
different about my storiei didn't just see the flash i saw a red streak
about 20ft above my trailer it looked like one of my power lines burnt up but i
go outside and their was no power line were i seen the red streak so i figure it
landed about 100yd outside or within my property my property just an estimation.
I live in Cortez Colorado. Just happened to step outside and saw the whole
thing. Thought it was a transformer. There has to be fragments. Did anyone
hear a sonic boom? Does it have to be a certain size for that to happen?
I recall in 1972 there was fireball over the Wasatch Front (North-South Track).
Just so happened a U.S. Spy Satillite happened to be overhead. I remember the
news saying the object was between the size of a Refrigerator and a VW and a
skipped back into space. Had it landed in Temple Square there would be no more
downtown SLC. Anybody remember the particulars of that event? SCS
This may be a stupid question - butWhy couldn't the military at Dugway go
and look for it or give their scientist and OK to go look for it out there?
Granite Peak is well within Dugway Proving Ground, and more than 20 miles from
the Deep Creek Mountains.Granite Peak has numerous military ranges around
it that are used nearly every day, including the weekends.Try sneaking
onto Dugway and you'll get arrested and prosecuted at the federal level. Might
as well forget looking for it on Dugway.And the whole area is muddy right
now. Vast areas have no cell phone coverage. Get mired out there, and you could
die before someone finds you.
Granite Mountain is smack dab in the middle of Dugway; it is not really in any
range. It is a very unique geographical specimen and it is mostly forgotten
about because of its inaccessibility being on Dugway Proving Grounds.
My father experienced one here in Michigan about 35 years ago. He excitedly
said the night become as day for several seconds. He heard no sonic boom though.
I was on I-215 when it happened leaving work,it definitly some of the fragements
I could plainly see broke up and landed between the airport and 21st So. and it
looked like around 7200 W to 9000 W when it happened it was amazing!!!!!!
Isn't Granite Peak in the Deep Creek range? A little further than 30 miles from
Dugway, but in the neighborhood.
That would be awesome if it did land in Utah. I mean, who wouldn't want a
fireball landing in their back yard?
