The American Meteor Society says portions of the findings will be donated to a scientific institution for classification. A major section of the fragment fell in the township of Hamburg.

The main pieces were found Thursday by proficient seekers Larry Atkins and Robert Ward of Arizona, as indicated by the American Meteor Society.

Astronomers from nearby Longway Planetarium, in Flint, MI, were quick to respond, heading out in the light of day to see if they could locate any meteorites from this fireball. Most of the fragments landed in Hamburg Township, Mich.

Small pieces of it showered Hamburg and now meteorites hunters are searching high and low for these space rocks. When it enters Earth's atmosphere it becomes a meteor, fireball or shooting star. The small fragments of rock that reach the surface of the Earth are termed as meteorites which are very valuable to space rock collectors from all over the world. The remnants must be analyzed by a lab to be accredited as meteorites.

'It's a really spectacular specimen, ' Ward said while holding one of the meteorites.

"A few days ago it was hundreds of thousands of miles on the other side of the moon", Ward said.

Ward said he utilized seismic information, Doppler radar and witness data to limit where to look.

Ward is a prolific meteorite hunter, normally traveling overseas to find his space rocks.

A grin stretched across Robert Ward's face Thursday afternoon as he talked about the three meteorites he found in less than four hours. Shooting star seekers look for consent from landowners before looking on their property, Ward said.

The American Meteor Society reports that a total of 6 meteorites from the January 16 event have been found in MI.

This would suggest it came crashing down to earth, but there has been no official confirmation of this yet.

Shooting star seekers who rushed to Detroit from over the USA after a meteor detonated are finding the pieces.

Darryl Pitt, a New York City resident and meteorite consultant to Christie's auction house, is offering $20,000 for a recovered fragment weighing at least 1 kilogram. "Because people are going to want to have a piece of the MI meteor".
