Bonsoir Michel, Hello List,

Could this be a revival of the Chinguetti story?
But Chinguetti was supposed to be a mesosiderite!
The coordinates given for the Chinguetti mass are
the same as the coordinates for Aouelloul.
The Aouelloul impactor is said to have been an iron
- possibly a pallasite, so myth and folklore may have
blended here. Just a guess!

Best wishes,
