Maine Mineral & Gem Museum Offers $25,000 Reward for Meteorite Fragments from Fireball Seen in New Brunswick, Canada

On Saturday, a fireball was seen cutting across the sky in New Brunswick, Canada, in broad daylight. NASA's Astromaterials Research and Exploration Science (ARES) Lab was able to calculate the "strewn field" where fragments of the meteor might be found near Calais, Maine. In response, the Maine Mineral & Gem Museum has announced a $25,000 reward for a kilogram of the meteorite and is asking anyone who witnessed the fireball to remember its path and contact them if they find any fragments.
