About Me

About Me:

Hello my name is Shawn Alan and I have a�strong passion for astronomy and you could say this is how I became interested in meteorites. It was not long ago when I thought that only meteorites could only be owned by the rich and famed. But low and behold I was up late one night watching JTV in December 2009 around the holidays and saw a Sikhote Alin meteorite for sale. For days I pondered the idea about owning the meteorite and told myself that this would be the only one I would own. I felt by just owning that one, it would make it special, but I was wrong. The day before Christmas eve I was watching a science show called Things that fall from the Sky, and there it was, 2008TC3 aka Almahata Sitta, the first meteor to be detected�from space before impacting Earth, resulting in recovered meteorites. That was the turning point of my one meteorite collection and for 14 hours straight, I did research on the internet about meteorites and the rest is history.
