Weston, USA, *1807

Weston was the meteorite fall which really got things going in the States, being one of the examples (like L’Aigle) where so many people observed the shower of stones fall to earth that it was difficult to argue it away.

Despite this, Thomas Jefferson is reputed to have said: “I would rather believe two Yankee professors would lie, than that stones have fallen from the heavens.”

Which just goes to show, politicians aren’t always to be believed ;)
