Where’s the Michigan meteor? IN YOUR BACKYARD….maybe
Where did the Michigan Meteor land? According to MLive.com and depending on what expert you ask, it could've landed somewhere east of Pinckney, OR it could be along I-96, between Webberville and Fowlerville.
Delta College, in Bay City, took data from the American Meteor Society and plotted out the possible impact zone. They say look near I-96 between Webberville and Fowlerville.
NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office in Huntsville, Alabama, thinks the meteor (considered a meteorite once we find pieces of it) may have come down in a 2.5-mile area west of Hamburg Township, which puts it just east of Pinckney.
The experts say the meteorite pieces will probably contain some iron. So, bring your magnet, or better yet - a metal detector.
Good luck - send pictures if you find something.
