Expedition Notes - A Meteorite Fall

Expedition Notes

We eventually found a second impact site. We had whittled our suspects down to a single possibility; a skimmer...

Perched alongside the edifice of the Hamar L'Aghdad was the rugged expanse of the Western Desert in Morocco, which has captivated many an explorer for centuries. When the conditions are favourable, one may be lucky enough to locate curious fossils such as trilobites.

These can be found in a handful of mountain ranges which penetrate into the fringes of Algeria and the Enormous Sahara. The Tenéré Desert provides befitting conditions to gain from the pastel offerings. After driving for hours off road, we were half way through our nine hour breakneck odyssey.



We laboriously lugged all the tools and filming gear up a steep mountainside in the dazzling sunlight and beyond the immediate view lay a hidden mystery. The sun had risen defiantly when something rather extraordinary piqued our interest. With bated breath, we hastened our steps towards an area that embraced a paleontological ethos - welcome too THE FOSSIL STORE

Once part of a substantial meteor body orbiting asteroids or asteroid belts in our solar system. In rare events, these stars fall to planetary objects, in this case, earth - entering our stratosphere and impacting the Western Saharan Desert.
