CU Researchers To Study Berthoud Meteorite
University of Colorado researchers are planning their scientific analysis of a meteorite that fell near Berthoud last week. It´s only the fifth meteorite to ever have been seen falling and then be recovered in Colorado. The meteorite weighs just over two pounds and is about the size of a baseball. It is shiny and black, and has an irregular shape. Scientists say it appears to be made of igneous rock and is melted on its surface from the heat of entering the atmosphere. The meteorite was recovered after it landed about 100 feet away from Berthoud residents Megan and John Whiteis. The couple was walking into their back yard last Tuesday afternoon when it flew over their heads.
