Every metorite fall (that we know of) since 2300 BC on an interactive map

That's actually just a screenshot because a link to the page just gives you a boring looking text link.

  1. Great post. I think the Nullabor in Australia, and Antarctica both emphasizes just how often they hit our planet. Both are incredibly sparsely populated, but easy (relatively) places to find meteorites.

  2. Nice.  Head for the poles.

  3. Personally, I think that Russia just attracts the things.

  4. Think I'll move to Hawaii, just not Honolulu… Oh wait, where I live there hasn't been one (yet). Thanks for the "heads-up".

  5. Wow, don't live on the New Mexico Texas border.

  6. +Joe Lyons maybe… I hope it goes in the drink instead of hits my house (drink, as in Pacific Ocean, just a mile and a half from my house and a much larger target).

  7. Seems scary at first because so many are around populated areas. But these are mostly "found" and I assume more people equals more found meteorites. I'd bet the actual dispersal is more even. 
    It's a very cool map, thanks for sharing +Dustin Wyatt .
