This June 2013 photo provided by the Smithsonian Institution via the University of California-Davis shows the main mass of the rare Sutter's Mill meteorite before the Smithsonian Institution cut it and divided it among five U.S. academic institutions. The Smithsonian cut the meteorite into five sections that will go to: The Field Museum in Chicago; the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History in Washington; the American Museum of Natural History in New York; Arizona State University in Tempe, Ariz.; and the University of California-Davis. The 205 gram mass is the largest stone recovered from the meteorite that exploded over California's Sierra foothills in April 2012.
