Sikhote Alin

Meteorite, a bit from my collection, Sikhote Alin, this chunk of iron fell to earth on the 12th of February 1947 along with about 70 tons of other bits and spread it's self over about 300 square kilometres. no body seems to have been hurt but it is the best recorded fall. Not to be confused with the Tunguska event
