So, this morning I'm walking into town from my Camp and, lo and behold, out in middle of no where I find what looks suspiciously like a Meteorite Crater.

It's out in the middle of nowhere - off the beaten pass - and since they don't allow hunting on Mars Hill, it is possible that no one else has ever seen this crater.

It about 20 feet in diameter and about 12 to 15 feet deep and it has obviously been there a while.  There are trees growing on the rim of the crater that are at least about 20 years old or more so I suspect that this is a meteorite crater unless its a real small volcano or some smuck was out in the middle of nowhere digging a 15 foot hole for absolutely no reason.

Directions to approximate location are : Milton to Butler - right on Butler to end and take dirt road that parallels Rail Road Tracks to second under pass and then incline to the left and follow dirt road about one quarter mile onto Mars Hill then take the Foot Path for about another quarter mile.  Crater is about 50 Yards off the Beaten Path.

I went up to the Lowell Observatory to report it and the Meteor Guy is in Chile and won't be back for a couple of weeks so I told them I would check back and left a note.

Deciding whether or not I should go dig it up myself...

BAD COMPANY lyrics - Shooting Star

Johnny was a schoolboy when he heard his first Beatle song,
'Love me do,' I think it was. From there it didn't take him long.
Got himself a guitar, used to play every night,
Now he's in a rock 'n' roll outfit,

And everything's all right, don't you know?

Johnny told his mama, hey, 'Mama, I'm goin' away. I'm gonna hit the big
time, gonna be a big star someday', Yeah.
Mama came to the door with a teardrop in her eye.
Johnny said, 'Don't cry, mama, smile and wave good-bye'.

Don't you know, yeah yeah, Don't you know that you are a shooting star,
Don't you know, don't you know. Don't you know that you are
a shooting star, And all the world will love you just as long,
As long as you are.

Johnny made a record, Went straight up to number one,
Suddenly everyone loved to hear him sing the song.
Watching the world go by, surprising it goes so fast.
Johnny looked around him and said, 'Well, I made the big time at last'.

Don't you know, don't you know, Don't you know that you are
a shooting star,
Don't you know, oh, yeah, Don't you know that you are
a shooting star, yeah,
And all the world will love you just as long,
As long as you are, a shooting star.

Don't you know that you are a shooting star, Don't you know, yeah,
Don't you know that you are a shooting star, now,
And all the world will love you just as long, As long you are you.

Johnny died one night, died in his bed, Bottle of whiskey,
sleeping tablets by his head. Johnny's life passed him by like a
warm summer day, If you listen to the wind you can still hear him play

Oh oh oh, Don't you know that you are a shooting star,
Don't you know, yeah, don't you know', Don't you know that
you are a shooting star,
Don't you know, yeah,
Don't you know that you are a shooting star,
Don't you, don't you,
don't you, don't you,
Don't you know, don't you
know, oh, yeah, you are,
Yeah, a shooting star, yeah, oh
oh oh oh oh.

Don't you, don't you know
that you are a shooting star,
Don't you don't you know...

Hello Dr. Hunter,

I was wondering if anyone has ever reported finding a Meteorite here on Mars Hill.

The reason I ask is because I was walking in the woods today and found what appears to be a meteorite crater out in the middle of nowhere. It is perfectly circular and roughly 20 feet in diameter and about 15 feet deep and has been there for a while. Trees growing on the rim are approximately 20 years old or older. I have walked by this four or five times before and never seen it and it is off the beaten path so most people would never see it and and since there is no hunting on Mars Hill it is possible that it has never been recorded. I went up to the Obseratory to report it but the Meteorite guy - John - is in Chile for the nexts to weeks so I thought I would drop a note here and see if there is anyway I can have it checked out earlier or if it would be acceptable for me to go dig it up on my own and present it to the Observatory if I find anything.

Thanks for you help.

Sincerely,

David T. Hill
