Hi everyone

Just thought I would share these photos, as I had a mind blowing experience today at the Royal Ontario Museum where my girlfriend works. For 3 years now I have been asking her to grant me access into the mineralogy department to view their meteorite collection. Not only did I get my chance this afternoon, but I also had the fortunate opportunity to handle a Lunar meteorite and also a Mars meteorite. Ohhhhh and I couldn't be photographed without wearing my spinner44 "City Speak" T-shirt Smile

enjoy

I took about 150 photo's of all the specimens in the dozens of drawers and of all the Big Bertha irons they have that weigh over 300 pounds - Just amazing!!!

That is a really cool photo! It reminds me of the look of some of the glass art planets and paperweights I collect from Josh Simpson.
