Subject: [meteorite-list] HUGE meteorite in France
A huge iron meteorite has been found in France. 477 kilos. And 55 000 years old.
It is the St Aubin and now it is the largest meteorite ever found in France, even bigger than Mon Dieu and La Caille.
And the strewn field has also been figured out.
Here, on behalf of Marc Chapelet who handles the Meteorites Division, are all the details (in English, below the French version)
published by the Societe Astronomique de France, so it is a serious report. (not a journalistic fantasy).
More questions let me know, and I'll translate.
