Article | 13-year-old boy using his home made metal detector finds 2-pound meteorite

  As the director of the University of New Mexico’s Institute of Meteoritics, Carl Agee gets tons of calls, packages and emails from people claiming to have had the rare experience of actually finding a meteorite.

Sadly for Agee, most are merely terrestrial rocks, what he calls meteor-wrongs.

Then he met 13-year-old Jansen Lyons. Two weeks ago, the teenager walked into the institute – his mother in tow – carrying what he said was a 2-pound hunk of space rock he found at an undisclosed location in the Albuquerque suburb of Rio Rancho.
