A Kiowa County man said he may have found what could be one of the largest meteorites ever reported.
Don Stimpson said he and Paul Ross were searching Ross' field recently with a giant metal detector when the device made so much noise they thought they'd found an old culvert.
Instead, they began digging up pieces of meteorite.
"We dug and dug and brought up a 250-pound meteorite. And then we looked, and there was another one there. We dug it out and...well, wait a minute, there is more. We brought 1,500 pounds of meteorite from that one hole" - Don Stimpson, who had thought the field had been cleared of meteorites.
Professional meteorite hunter Steve Arnold found the current record-holder, a 1,400-pound pallasite, about two miles southeast of the site.
