To whom it may concern,

We are on a quest for meteorites from Latvia!


There are only 4 known meteorites in Latvia and all are historical falls more than 100 years ago:
1. Lixna (1820), see Ref: [Met.Bul.DB], [Enc.of Met.];
2. Buschhof (1863), see Ref: [Met.Bul.DB], [Enc.of Met.],
3. Nerft (1864), see Ref: [Met.Bul.DB], [Enc.of Met.],
4. Misshof (1890), see Ref: [Met.Bul.DB], [Enc.of Met.],

Unfortunately almost all of these meteorites have been lost from our country. Currently we are in a stage trying to gather information about their locations in the various world museums and collections. We know some but not all of it.

One of the Meteoriti.LV goals is to return back to our country at least some specimens of Latvian meteorites that will become available for public expositions and nondestructive research.

If you have or you come across any related information about the Latvian meteorites (Lixna, Buschhof, Nerft, or Misshof) please inform us at info@meteoriti.lv. Note that a well known information to you might be unknown and valuable to us.

We will gratefully appreciate any help, offers or information you can provide about fate or location of the Latvian meteorites!

Sincerely yours,

More information will follow soon, incl. about the Latvian Meteorite Collection Club.
Note, you don't have to own a Latvian meteorite to became a member of the LMCC.

Projekts tapis pateicoties: 
Meteoriti.LV vietne tiks pakāpeniski papildināta ar plašu pamatinformāciju par meteorītiku un ar to saistitām astronomijas nozarēm. Uzzināsiet, vai "meteorīti dabā sastopami retāk par dimantiem", cik tie ir veci un kāda ir to izcelsme. Atradīsiet atbildes uz jautājumiem: Vai meteorīti ir bīstami? Kādi meteorīti atrodami Latvijā un kur tos var apskatīt? Vai Latvijā ir vērts meklēt meteorītus? Ko meteorītu izpēte pastāsta mums par Zemes un Saules sistēmas izcelšanos? Ceram, ka tas radīs vēlmi arī jums pašiem novērot Zemes kosmiskos viesus - meteorus, un, varbūt, pat kļūt par īstiem meteorītu medniekiem!
Veiksmīgu novērošanu!
