Some 93 meteorites are represented in the collection as of  March 15, 1999
On November 10, 2000 my wife Lori and I, Dean Bessey, Mike Tettenborn and his friend
Jeff visited the Royal Ontario Museum and got a grand tour of their meteorite
collection. This is the collection that is not on display and is hidden 3 floors
down in the basement.
