Meteor over UK mapped: Where did the meteorite fragments land? 'Do not touch!'

0


However, anyone who chances upon one of the fragments has been urged not to touch them.

Instead, use your phone or another GPS-enabled device to mark the object’s exact location and contact the National History Museum or Uk Meteor Network.

Dr Katherine Joy of the University of Manchester said: “If do find a meteorite on the ground, ideally photograph it in place, note the location using your phone GPS, don’t touch it with a magnet, and, if you can, avoid touching it with your hand.

“Pick it up in a clean plastic bag or clean aluminium foil if possible!”
