Abstract

Cratering features are observed on the surface of planetary bodies and on their moon’s surface, small size cratering features are observed on the surface of moons, asteroids, meteoroids, and meteorites. To investigate in detail the formation or the cause or origin of small size cratering features on the surface of meteorites, five iron meteorites namely Sikhote Alline – 1 No., Campo-del Cielo – 2 No., unknown iron meteorites – 3 Nos and a stony meteorite Chelyabinsk were undertaken with respect to earth rocks. From the studies conducted, it is concluded that the cratering features observed on meteorites are from the time our present solar system came into existence, it may either be pre-solar dust, present solar dust or fragments from the supernova explosion. This paper reports or documents a detail study to search the cause or origin of small size cratering features on the meteorite surface, which is one of the most important characteristic feature in recognizing a meteorite from a terrestrial rock.
