The Strathmore meteorite - 1917 Dec 3

Dr Dave Gavine told me the story of the Strathmore meteorite and that it smashed a hole in the roof of South Lodge, Keithick, Perth & Kinross.

He kindly sent me Perth Museum's postcard of the famous 'damaged roof' photo and if you haven't heard the full story you can read it here:

Clear skies,

Alex.
