... network is currently in operation, that of the European Network (EN), to monitor the meteoroid flux on a daily basis. Trial operations have just begun in another, the Desert Fireball Network, based in the Nullabor Region of Western Australia (Bland 2004 ). A successful trial period with one camera...

.... The small proportion of falls to finds (4: 244) reflects the sparse population of the State. This may change significantly when a network of all-sky fireball cameras is established in the Nullarbor Region. Covering an area of 2.5 × 10 6 km 2 , Western Australia represents approximately one third...

... Africa (NWA) and without specific localities have also been recorded so far from the Sahara. Many of these meteorites were purchased through dealers in Morocco (Russell et al. 2004 ), and some have been claimed to have been found in that country. The Atacama Desert in northern Chile runs parallel...

... on pyritiferous rocks. The decade between 1794 and 1804 witnessed a dramatic advance from rejection to acceptance of meteorites. The three main contributing factors were E.F.F. Chladni's book of 1794, in which he argued for the actuality of falls and linked them with fireballs; the occurrence of four witnessed...

... surface airburst ( Fig. 4 ). This does not cause a crater. Instead, these jets can melt the ground into a glass layer tens of centimeters in thickness and cause destruction and forest fires over a wider area. Desert glass from Libya (melted silica sand) and Muong Nong tektites (melted laterite soils) from...

... mineral clasts ( Kerschhofer et al., 2000 ; Kettrup et al., 2003 ). These different melt films probably reflect compositional variations of melt in the fireball, and admixtures of local melt on the surface of the gneiss bombs. Compared to the cores, the melt coatings differ in their major element...

... that meteorites may be effectively collected in Antarctica (Kojima 2006 ) and in hot deserts (Bevan 2006 ), where they are usually well preserved. Professional meteorite collection expeditions were organized. Huge numbers of meteorites began flowing into meteorite collections around the world. Among them...

... opposition of August 2003 shows that the painting is quite accurate – save for the elaborate network of canals also depicted! The presence of this globe may in some way reflect the pioneering work that Fr Secchi had carried out half a century earlier. Observing Mars during the 1858 opposition, he first...
