Elbogen, Czech Republic, *1400
Many people – including some meteorite collectors – believe that the earliest witnessed fall for which material is still extant is the famous one in Ensisheim, 1492. In fact, it’s not – Elbogen is a type IIID iron meteorite which fell in the Zapadocesky region of what is now the Czech Republic.
Its total known weight is around 107kg, but much of it is in institutions. My specimen here weights 1,8g and was purchased from, and prepared by, Mirko Graul.
