BACKGROUND AND HISTORY

Abee meteorite
The year was 1952. Late in the evening on June ninth, the population in the Alberta, Canada province reported the sighting of a fireball in the sky. Moments later, explosions were heard followed by concussions or shock waves as a meteorite entered the Earth’s atmosphere and landed in a farmer’s wheat field.
When the impact site of this meteorite was located, searchers found a six-foot deep hole that was approximately three feet in diameter. Nestled at the bottom of this large hole appeared to be a large rock, which was crusted-over and black.
When scientists got a hold of this amazing find, they named it the Abee Meteorite.
The Abee meteorite had a number of weird minerals where oxygen is not around. In its place within the Abee meteorite was sulfur.
The inner structure of Abee meteorite had weird breccia. Basically, what this means is that the composition was like a rock, which had a number of pointy pieces in it that were cemented together in a matrix format.
The clastic form of the rocks reflects the meteor’s makeup and in this case it had some metal in it. None of the other meteors discovered have this type of structure and is therefore classified as unusual.
