The Stories are the reason I collect meteorites. Lets face it, many meteorites are ugly. I have had many people describe my prize sample of Forrest City as resembling a tar covered piece of concrete. And you know what, they are right.
The stories are varied: Zagami, I came from Mars. Sylacauga, I hit a woman the ended up in court. Mabel, people ate me hoping that I would cure AIDS. Almahata Sitta, I was photographed in space. Ensisheim, I was chained to a church so that I would not fly back into the sky.

That is what makes meteorites so fascinating to me.
