DISCOVERY OF THE TWO BUTTES (b), COLORADO, STONY METEORITE

Name: TWO BUTTES (b)

Place of find: Two Buttes, Baca County, Colorado.

37°38'N, 102°25'W.

Date of find: 1970

Class and type: Stone. Chondrite.

Number of individual specimens: 1

Total weight: 3 kg

Circumstances of find: Found lying under a fence when a farmer was repairing a broken wire.

Mr. Huss feels that this individual represents a separate fall from the previously reported Two Buttes (subsequently to be known as Two Buttes(a)) specimen. This area of Colorado is devoid of place names.
