The tiny fragment of a supposed
meteorite sent from Vancouver to
the Eugene astrology department
for analyzation, may be nothing
more than a flare dropped from an
airplane, Dr. J. H. Pruett, Pacific
director of the American Meteor so
ciety, said last week.
The tiny particle of rock is under
the observation of L. W. Staples,
assistant professor of geology, and
Roy C. Andrews of the chemistry
Analytical conclusion is that the
particle is just a fused rock heated
by falling particles similar, to fused
rock found in meteor crator, Coca
nio, Oregon. According to Dr. Sta
ples the rock is not related to lech
atelierite (silic glass) found by fu
sions of sandstone by heat generat
ed by impacts of meteorites or me
teorite swarm. The fragment is so
small that it has had to be exam
ined by microchemical methods.
Dr. Andrews stated that although
the rock contained no magnesium,
he would continue his analysis to

Dr. Pruett said the fragment
could not be a meteorite because it
contained no iron or nickel. Meteor
ites, in falling, Jdo not glow all the
way down to the.surface of the
earth. At Vancouver spectators ob
served that this fragment made a
brilliant white light. Meteorites in
coming to earth cast a redish hue.
Moreovdb, Dr. Pruett added, the
fragment made no sound when hit
ting the earth.
At the present time the Palo Alto
public library, California, has on
display the Pruett collection of 30
different rare meteorological form
ations. Three meteor drifts have
fallen in the state of Oregon, said
Dr. Pruett, and since the beginning
of time, 1,400.
The meteorological formation of
October 10, was the rarest in his
tory since 1855.
