A co-worker asked me today about a meteorite he saw pictured in the newspaper that was to go on the auction block Sunday, in Dallas. The view in the photo shows it appearing as the outline of the State of Michigan and the caption said it was found in Argentina,, if I remember correctly.
Any more information readily availiable on this one?
Neither he or I have any plans on putting in a bid, but we are curious.

I haven't heard about the auction yet, but if it's from Argentina, then it's likely a big Campo Del Cielo iron.
