On Tuesday, 28 July 2015, around 5:30 pm local time (6:30 pm GMT), many
people from Tissint and its vicinity
heard three sonic booms in the direction of Sidi Ali Ou Azza. Immediately,
numerous people begin searching for
the meteorite in the area. Two days after the fall, many small pieces from 5
to 109 g (so far: 109, 100,
75, 50, 40, 37, 20, 10, 7, and 5.7 g) were recovered close to Sidi Ali Ou
Azza and El Kharoua' well,

black fusion crust. The interior is dark and brecciated,
with a few clear gray zones. Numerous small and well-defined chondrules are
visible as well as sulfides and metals.
The direction of the fall was from north to south; the strewnfield is ~4 km
