Mr. Walter Ferguson

Australia

Dear Mr. Ferguson:

Thank you very much for your letter of 22 June addressed to the Curator of Meteorites, and for the report of your observation of June/July 1946.

From your description it appears that what you observed was indeed a bright fireball, and you were fortunate in having seen this phenomenon. Very bright meteors such as this are rela^[[t]]ively rare.

I am enclosing a copy of the publication "Meteorites", which I hope you will find interesting

Very truly yours,

David R. Squires
Operations Officer SEAN
