Sikhote Alin, Russia
Fall, Feb. 12, 1947. 10 kg.
This is the coarsest octahedrite and an unmistakable meteorite. It broke up late in entry and scattered jagged shrapnel from the stars over a concentrated strewnfield. It detonated with such force that pieces were found stuck in trees.
Gebel Kamil, Egypt.
Fall, approx. 2,500 BCE. 6.9 kg.
This witnessed fall seems to coincide nicely with ancient Biblical accounts, and pieces were found in tombs of the pharaohs. Unbelievably, the
impact zone was recognized by an Italian team searching Google Earth and hundreds of potato chip shaped fragments were recovered later.
