Hello Vanguard, 

Very nice, no doubt that is a classic Sikhote Alin. Meteorites are one of my passions.

 

HAPPY SKIES AND KEEP LOOKING UP Jethro

Meteorite, not meteor. It is a nice example of a Sikhote-Alin. I see that you've now corrected the error in terminology, you're welcome.

The term 'space rock' is synonymous with meteorite. I assumed, perhaps wrongly, that you posted it to enable those with an interest in the subject to comment on it. They will be more likely to see it on the specific forum designed for that content.
