Meteorites/Meteoritos

By Chico

I was in the northern mountains of the state of Puebla and we ate at a friend’s house. After lunch, I was walking around outside their house. I looked down and there was a weird looking rock on the ground. I picked it up and like I said, it was a strange rock.

I put it my pocket and didn’t think much of it until the next day when we went to the market in another town. There were a lot of people selling rocks that looked just like mine. I asked someone what they were and he said they were meteorites!

It turns out that there are a lot of meteorites to be found in that area. Right then I was very glad that I had not thrown away my “rock”! We bought some more that look like they have little cubes in them.

The meteorite I found broke open a bit and looks rusty, so I think it’s made of iron.

Goodbye for now!

The end.

Estuve en la sierra norte de Puebla y fuimos a comer en la casa de unos amigos. Después de comer, estuve explorando en el patio de su casa. Miré hacia abajo y vi una piedra extraña allí en la tierra. La levanté y como dije, vi que era una piedra algo extraña.

La puse en mi bolsillo y no la pensé mucho hasta que fuimos al mercado en otro pueblo al día siguiente. Habían muchas personas vendiendo piedras que parecían como la mía. Pregunté a un señor acerca de las piedras y ¡me dijo que eran meteoritos!

Resulta que se encuentran muchos meteoritos en esa región de la sierra. En ese momento ¡estuve muy contento de que no había botado mi “piedra”! 

Compramos otros meteoritos y parecen ser compuestos de cubitos. El meteorito que yo encontré se rompió un poco y se ve como oxidado, así que yo pienso que está compuesto de hierro.

¡Es todo por ahora!

¡Hasta luego!

  1. Hi Chico, Your rock sounds interesting. I would not want to be there when they are falling to earth from outer space. It would be noisy on the roofs and painful outside, ha ha. I am glad you kept the rock and didn’t throw it away.

    • We looked up meteorites on the internet and found some that weighed like 20 tons! I’m glad nothing like that fell on top of us! Buscamos por información acerca de meteoritos en el internet y encontramos algunos que pesaban hasta 20 toneladas! Me alegra que no cayeron en mi cabeza!
