SUMMARY

This is an initial draft which will be updated in the coming days.

This was a probable meteorite fall east of Grimsby, Ontario, Canada which occurred 19 Nov 2022 at 0827 UTC. Radar signatures appear from ~15km altitude down to 850m.  Most of this fall landed in Lake Ontario but small masses might be found east of Grimsby and large masses might have landed near McNab.

METEORITES 101

This step-by-step guide will show you how to locate possible meteorite fall sites using radar software and weather data along with info provided by reporting agencies and monitoring systems.
These instructions will show you how to best preserve the meteorites you discover and how to make contact with the organizations that are willing to accept and analyze your find.
Don't know exactly what a meteorite is, what they are made of or where they come from? If that's the case, we have provided a mini-"crash" course in what you need to know about them.
It turns out that meteorites have provided us a lot of scientific insight, not only into the origins of our solar system and planet Earth, but what the future might hold for mankind.
There's a lot going on in the study of meteorites, both here at NASA and in other places. Here are a few links to the people and institutions who are leading the research in this field.
