Hunt on for Tenerife meteor

The hunt is on in Tenerife to find a small fragment of a meteor that scientists believe fell to earth in the Vilaflor area over a month ago.

Telescopes across the Canaries detected a bright object falling to the ground in May, and now the hunt is on for any fragments that could have survived entry into the atmosphere.

Scientists have narrowed the point where the fragment landed to an area of 200 metres in Vilaflor, although hopes of finding anything of the meteor remain slim.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
