I'm sure you've realised that, when I say "fallen star", I really mean "meteorite". You hadn't? Well, you do now.
To catch the meteorites, you will need:
- Magnets in a plastic bag
To view the meteorites, you will need:
- A pair of non-magnetic forceps or tweezers - it is possible to manage with nimble fingers, but you are more likely to lose any interesting samples.
- A microscope slide, preferably with a concave depression to stop things rolling away.
- Clear nail varnish or "super" glue (CA glue, crazy glue)
- A narrow-nibbed permanent marker.
- A microscope.
