Hi Friends and CN'ers!

It's time for another freebie meteorite giveaway, just for my Cloudy Nights friends! :)

Here is how it will work :

I will ask three meteorite-related trivia questions. Please respond to me via Private Message (PM) with your answers - do NOT post them here in the open where everyone can see.

The first three responses I get that have each answer correct will be entered into a drawing. I will only accept the first three correct responses. If you get a question wrong, your response is invalidated.


The three lucky winners will randomly receive (based on a blind drawing) -

1) a $40 Galactic Stone store credit - good for anything in the store - you only pay shipping. (no handling or hidden costs)

2) a $20 Galactic Stone store credit - good for anything in the store - you only pay shipping.

3) a free Steinheim shattercone impactite - this is a sample of shock-altered bedrock from the Steinheim crater in Germany. This is the fossilized remains of the impact shock wave that tore through the native bedrock with such force, that it forever altered these samples. This specimen is absolutely free - I pay shipping to anywhere in the world.


-----

Ok, now for the trivia questions. All of these questions relate to recent meteorite falls.

1) Researchers from what university were the first scientists to arrive on the scene of the Buzzard Coulee (Canada) meteorite fall?

2) The Tamdakht meteorite fall occurred over what mountain range in Morocco?

3) What is the name of the dog who found a meteorite from the Ash Creek (Texas) fall?

-----

Please respond via PM only - do not reply here.

I will post a notice here announcing the winners after I go through the correct responses.

Best regards and good luck!
