Colorado Meteorites

Colorado has 87 official known meteorites that have been found in the state. This is the 7th largest number of any state in the U.S., trailing just Texas, California, New Mexico, Kansas, Arizona and Nevada. Although most of them were found many years after they fell from the sky, some were actually seen (as a fireball or smoke trail) or heard falling. Those are called "falls".
