I reciently got given a fragment of the Campo Del Cielo Meteorite as a gift and 
I was doing a lot of reading about it trying to find out if it's possible to 
identify where it came from or likely came from. And also how long it would've 
taken to get to earth from there after it was thrown out of its belt.

Sites about comets and the like suggest some come from the ort cloud and others 
from the scattered disc. I was just wondering if theres any model for making an 
estimation on this kind of thing.
