Today another fresh meteorite was recovered in Norway most probably
from the same fall as on Friday. This time right in a built-up area in the town
of Moss. Moss is situated close to the Oslofjord, population about 30.000.
This means the strewnfield must be at least about 3-4 km going in a
direction. To be noted is that around 40-50% of the stretch of the centerline
in the strewnfield is water, and the Oslofjord except the narrow island of
is to the west!
