Allan Hills

Allan Hills
Allan Hills is a region of Victoria Land, Antarctica, to the west of which large numbers of meteorites have been recovered in recent years, including ALH 84001. The meteorites become concentrated on areas of "blue ice" by natural movements of the ice sheet, and are easy to find due to the light background and absence of other rocks.
