Northwest Africa 4460 is a cool looking L3 chondrite without much description in the bulletin. It does make a nice photography target and the images I took turned out surprisingly well. The scattered black inclusions are especially worth exploring.

Los Angeles 002 Meteorite Thin Section

Nice looking Shergottite thin section displaying colorful geometric grains and other, completely black ones. The Los Angeles Meteorite is a special meteorite due to its circumstantial discovery. Imagine having a Martian rock sitting in your garage without realizing it! There are probably thousands of unclassified meteorites all over the world right now, sitting in peoples gardens, housetops, and rock collections. And Jon Larsen shows in his book, In Search of Stardust that there are micrometeorites literally everywhere around us.
