Meteorite Found In Liberal Authenticated
11/19/2009

A biophysicist has confirmed that a black

rock that fell into a backyard in Liberal during the weekend was a

meteorite.

Ten-year-old Chandler Harp found the 2-inch-diameter black rock

Saturday after hearing what he thought was an explosion.

Don Stimpson of Haviland, a biophysicist who owns the Kansas

Meteorite Museum and Nature Center near Greensburg, says he's

convinced the rock is a meteorite.

Stimpson saw the rock during a visit to Liberal Tuesday. He says

it likely came from the atmosphere around the sun and fell as far

as 100 million miles.

Chandler's mother, a pharmacist, says the meteorite weighed 47

grams.

Stimpson says the value of the meteorite depends on what

collectors are willing to pay, but it can go as high as $100 per

gram.
