..., a stony meteorite of substantial size is found in the collection at the Field Museum in Chicago accredited to Meteor Crater. This piece is certainly not similar in any way to the nickel-iron meteoritic fragments. The two pieces of stony meteorite might well be fragments from a second fall. The following...

One explanation for the absence of shatter cones at Brussels Hill could be that it is a small-diameter crater...
