Marc Fries writes, "I am very pleased to announce that Bob and Moni Verish have found the first meteorite from the Battle Mountain meteorite fall, which occurred on 21 August 2012! They have located a 19.25g meteorite that appears to be an OC H chondrite at first examination. According to the Meteoritical Society database, this makes Bob and Moni the first to ever recover an observed fall in the state of Nevada! We offer our hearty congratulations for this history-making find!"
  Details of the meteorite fall, to include radar imagery, seismometry and other data, a calculated strewn field estimate, and other information can be
