110730 - Image of The Month for August

Postby Matt Smith » Sat Jul 30, 2011 8:20 am

This month's image is a 1.07g part-slice of a rock which fell in Ireland 146 years ago on the 12th August. The fall in question is the seldom seen Dundrum, an H5 chondrite which fell as a single 2.2kg stone.. This image appears courtesy of Kieron Heard. Click here to view the image in the Gallery.
