I wrote about this fall in the August 1992 issue of Sky & Telescope and
included a picture of the crater. apparently hit as a single mass (no
strewnfield), despite witness reports of multiple explosions. it fell in a
freshly planted wheat field and splashed bright-toned ejecta 10-15 m outward
(judging from the photo). by the time a team from the Russian Academy of
Sciences arrived six days later, the locals had done quite a bit of prospecting
on their own. about two dozen fragments were found scattered around the crater.
overall it's very reminiscent of the Carancas fall.
