Bernd is listening but the only authenticated meteorite fall 'about 30
years ago' was BARWELL!

Barwell - L6
England, Leicestershire
52 34' N / 001 20' W
Fell 1965, December 24, 16:20 hrs

A shower of stones fell after a fireball was seen, with sonic effects;
one fragment was seen to fall and shatter and more material was
recovered over the following few weeks; the total mass recovered is at
least 44kg.

Did that retired gentleman remember the time of the year and/or the
date/the month? Christmas should be relatively easy to remember.

Regards, Bernd
