Hello Davio!

Great video and story - thanks for sharing...

This existing meteorite:

Was found in the 1800s and was called Tazewell - but I didn't really see anything in the stories to indicate if the stones are related - I assume they are not and the new stone will be called something like "Tazewell B".

Best Regards,

- RF

Hi Russ,
I agree, that's why my post title has a question mark at the end of it. I'm not sure what to make of it's future new name, if there is one.
