Looks like a few fragments from the September 25th fireball seen across Southern ontario have been found – in Grimsby, Ontario – exactly where the university researchers thought pieces would fall. But what is interesting is how and where they were found. In two separate finds, both rocks fell on private property. The first , weighing in at 46 grams smashed through an SUV windshield and the second fell on undisclosed private land. They are now in the hands of University of Western Ontario scientists who will be studying these ancient time capsules, they hope will help them understand a bit about the formation of our solar system nearly 5 billion years ago.
