Meteorite hunters descend on small gold country town
There is a new rush hitting gold country this week, but these miners weren't looking for nuggets. Instead, the hills were filled with meteorite hunters searching high and low for rocks from space.
In the small town El Dorado County town of Lotus, meteorite hunters by the hundreds have converged to try to find fragments of a meteor that came crashing down Sunday.
If they find a piece of the meteor, it could be worth more than gold.
On the road into the town, there's a sign that reads "Lotus Rocks." But on Thursday, there were a lot fewer rocks in Lotus than there were earlier in the week.
