Herbert writes:
60 years ago on this date, on March 04, 1960, at 08:06 UT (01:06 local time), a bright fireball streaked across the sky over Alberta, Canada, and was witnessed by a large number of people. From the fireball, a large number of meteorites fell in the fresh snow. Over 300 specimens with a total mass of more than 300 kg were recovered from a strewnfield about 3 km across. This makes Bruderheim the largest meteorite ever recovered in Canada.

This 101 g individual was exported from Canada before legal restrictions on the export of meteorites were implemented.
