Notes on the Meteoritical Bulletin Database

Select note:

Note 4: Meteorites classified before 2015 have one of two entries in the Fall column:

  • "Fall" (symbol Y; the meteorite was recorded in MetBull or older catalogs as a fall)
  • "Find" (column will be blank, indicating the meteorite was recorded as a find)
Starting in 2015 (MetBull 104), there are 5 categories of falls and finds:
  • "Confirmed fall" (symbol Yc)
  • "Probable fall" (symbol Yp)
  • "Find, possible fall" (symbol Np)
  • "Find, doubtful fall" (symbol Nd)
  • "Find" (blank, just like older finds)
