Hello List,

  Recent Indian news has reported another fall; this
one was in Rajasthan. Total weight of of the one
recovered meteorite was 6.8kgs. The news was rather
brief and no other details were given other than a
brilliant light and loud sound occured just prior to
the fall find.
  Given the recent flooding in that area and others in
India, it is hard to say if more meteorites will be
recovered from this or other recent falls.

  Best, Dirk...Tokyo
