    • Middle of the road

      Like Renfrow (above), Melrose (right), Fisher and Wickenburg (left), Oakley (below) is an example of a meteorite that formed at an intermediate distance from the Sun (ordinary chondrites). These meteorites have a mixture of rock-forming elements and more volatile elements, such as carbon and oxygen. They also resemble asteroids found in the central region of the main belt.
