Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

We recently had a lovely couple of days away in Albany, Western Australia. While there we visited the Western Australian Museum.

I found something that fits the category of FOREIGN very well! It is a piece of Mundrabilla Meteorite.

Thanks to Mr Albert John Carlyle, who received an Order of Australia Medal (OAM) for his efforts in finding meteorites, this piece is on public display in Albany, Western Australia.

It weighs about 3.5 tons and is aged about 4,600 million years.

Now THAT is foreign πŸ™‚
