If you’re looking for a piece of the meteor that exploded over Michigan on Tuesday evening, Livingston County is the place to be.

According to a NASA scientist quoted in the Detroit Free Press, the meteorites likely landed in an area 2 1/2 miles west of Hamburg Township.

“People shouldn’t look for big boulders,” said NASA’s Bill Cooke. “It’ll be just like tossing a rock in the snow. It’ll make a hole.” Cooke said the pieces will only be one to two ounces each, and will likely look like a piece of charcoal.

Oh, and if you find a meteorite? According to this story, it could be worth up to $1 million.
