Extraterrestrial Meteorites in Oman?!

(Image from Mr. Meteorite)

One my latest trip to Al Hoota Cave, I found myself fascinated with the information regarding extraterrestrial meteorites which have been found in Oman.  (Sounds like it would make for a great sci-fi movie, no?! 😉 )  The museum at Al Hoota is worth paying a visit if you make it out that way.

If you are interested in reading more about meteorites found in Oman, click here to read this article from Nizwa.net.  I found out here and on several other websites that people are selling meteorites which they’ve found in Oman.  Wow! $395 for a 564 gram chunk of rock.  Maybe I’ll start up a new hobby of “meteorite hunting” on the weekends here.

Meteorite Men – Oman version – starring “Andy in Oman”…what do you think? 😉
