Yep, that’s right, Rock-N-Water might now be home to some fresh meteorite fragments courtesy of the the Sutter’s Mill Meteorite.
On Sunday April 22nd at 7:51 AM a fireball (along with sonic booms) was seen over northern California. Small fragments have been found near Sutter’s Mill (just a couple miles from camp), and the fallout path is estimated to extend from Coloma to Cronan Ranch – putting Rock-N-Water right in the middle of things.
It will be interesting to see if our 49er Fun campers find any interesting “rocks” while panning for gold.
