According to the November 13th-14th 1884 issue of "L'Eco di Bergamo" a
loud explosion had been heard in the sky over Bergamo just after
11:00am on October 24th. When a group of peasants said that they had
observed a red fireball on the same day both this and the explosion
were immediately assumed to have been caused by the same meteoric
phenomenon. Later articles said people were looking for the artifact,
which may have fallen in Sorisole.

Was it found? Can fragments be bought?
