Where is My Picture?!
3.65 kg. 340 x 290 x 7 mm. Troilite nodules are 15-20 mm. Iron, IIIAB
TKW 58.2 metric tons. Fall not observed. Found 1818 in Greenland.
Fell about 10,000 years ago. It first became known to the scientific community in 1818 but the first large piece - the 31 MT Ahnighito (the Tent) - was not located until 1894. Robert E. Peary, the famous American Navy Arctic explorer, led the expedition and enlisted the help of a local Inuit guide. Seven other large pieces have been found since.
