Track goes right through the handle of the Big Dipper. So termination
NNW of Soest, Germany, about 8 degrees above azimuth 345. Assuming a
termination altitude of 20 km (very uncertain!), that puts the range at
around 140 km. With luck, this stayed over land and didn't end up in the
North Sea. Towns that are roughly this distance from Soest along that
azimuth are Lastrup, Lindern, Molbergen, Vrees, Rastdorf, Hilkenbrook
and Saterland. Looks like lots of farmland -- perfect for meteorite
recovery! --Rob
