| Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:
This is a piece of a rock that that was several inches in diameter.
It has a glassy, smooth exterior, but the rind is much too thick
a meteorite fusion crust.
A meteor moves through the atmosphere so fast that the molten material
that forms on the exterior sloughs off as soon as it forms.
|What is it?
We don't know what this is. It appears to be a thick glass coating
on a rock. It might not be of natural origin.
Note added later: A viewer identified this as goethite or
forms of iron oxide.
